I am running for Commissioner of Public Affairs because the politics of Portland are at an all time low. City Hall is tainted, plagued, and rife with scandal, controversy, and questionable decision making.
As a leader seeking to represent coming generations I am deeply committed to serving the public's interest through guiding us in a new direction to bring about the local transformation that is long overdue.
Join me in my effort to restore faith and trust in our local government. Portland deserves a better future. Thank You!
