Our Opinion: Our wishes for 2019

Best wishes for the Portland Diamond Project and their plans to bring Major League Baseball to the Rose City.

The arrival of the new year creates at least the illusion of a fresh slate for Oregonians and Portland-area residents. As such, here is our annual list of various wishes for the coming year:

• May Gov. Kate Brown recognize her political legacy will rest partly on how well she can tame ballooning costs of the state pension system. Now that she's freed from having to run for re-election, let's hope she sees that trimming pension costs is not anti-worker when it means saving more teachers', firefighters' and state workers' jobs.
