Michigan town says ‘We’re not the Portland in Oregon’ after angry Facebook messages
PORTLAND, Mich. - A small town in Michigan is getting some big attention from people out on the Pacific Coast. That’s because the cities share the same name, which can cause some confusion. The City of Portland has about 4,000 residents - a a small, quiet town where not a lot happens. That’s compared to Portland Ore., which has almost 650,000. City leaders in Michigan say they’re often confused for their west coast counterpart and have the social media messages to prove it, according to WXMI.
