I am chief executive officer for PEGUS Research. We are a pharmaceutical research firm located near Pioneer Park. We moved our 150 employee company here 18 months ago. The area presented some concerns but we had assurances it would get better. That has not been the case.
Pioneer Park area has become unsafe. The homeless, drug dealers and others have taken over as the city looks away. I have lived downtown for 12 years. We are selling.
Our employees have been followed by men in a van trying to get them to get in.
