On Running for Multnomah County District 3 Office

I’m running for the vacant Multnomah County District #3 (SE Portland) commissioner position. There will be a special election this May. I have been an active member of the Portland community for over 20 years and I am running for this important office because I think I can help in a variety of areas. I’m a team player and look forward to working with the other commissioners on issues like air quality, houselessness, and reviving our community.

I believe that there are many small, achievable things that we can easily accomplish. I have been frustrated at how long these types of changes can take to implement and I hope to be a catalyst for these changes. I also look forward to backing the leadership of our new chair, Jessica Vega Pederson, and working with the other members of the County Council. Here is why I am running.

In my About section, I’ll talk about my qualifications and some of the issues I have focused on in the past. Please consider signing up for my newsletter for this campaign and endorsing me. I have chosen not to take donations for this race. Thank you, for learning about my campaign, and welcome aboard.

Here’s a great Land Acknowledgement from the Richmond Neighborhood Association: Partly it reads: “We acknowledge that the land where the Richmond Neighborhood is located rests on the traditional village sites of the Multnomah, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Tualatin, Kalapuya, Molalla, bands of the Chinook, and many other Tribes who made their homes along the Columbia River. Multnomah is a band of Chinooks that lived in this area. We also acknowledge the systemic policies of genocide, relocation, and assimilation that still impact many Indigenous/Native American families today.
