“I’m a lifer,” says Chris Clifford. A seventh-generation (or so) resident of the neighborhood, he grew up a few blocks away from the Portland home where he lives with his wife Kerrie, sister to Kellie Hudson.
“I hear people, and I hear the news. Even the people I work with (at Winston Industries) are like, ‘Oh, my God, are you OK? I can’t believe you live there.’ But they come here and see a different side of Portland. I think the community at large doesn’t understand what a true gem this neighborhood is.”
