So much has happened since we started this campaign in January! I’ve had my campaign launch party, a house party, and I’m close to qualifying for public matching-funds for my campaign.
LABOR UNIONS’ FORUM
Last week, I participated in the Unions United City Council Candidate Forum (hosted by Laborers’ Local 483), where I discussed my views on protecting and empowering workers and also had the chance to hear from dedicated public employees (pictured below) who work hard to serve us every day. Workers are the backbone of our city and I am committed to showing up for them, both on my campaign and once I’m elected as a City Commissioner.
There’s already been so much support for my campaign, and I’ve started to earn many critical endorsements. I am very proud to announce that Bill Bradbury, the former Oregon Secretary of State and State Representative, is endorsing my candidacy! After serving as Secretary of State, Bill was appointed to the Northwest Power & Conservation Council by former Governor Ted Kulongoski. He is a climate and environmental champion, so it is an honor to be recognized by him for my record on the environment, especially my leadership on the campaign to keep Nestlé out of the Gorge and to stop the LNG pipelines and exports in Oregon.
I’m also thrilled to have the support of the Portland Community College Federation of Faculty & Academic Professionals (PCCFFAP), Portland for Clean Air, and the Progressive Party of Oregon! Supporting the thousands of people that these grass-roots groups represent is at the heart of my campaign, so I am honored to have their endorsements.
Thank you to everyone who has endorsed my candidacy so far! I will have many more endorsements to announce in the coming weeks (including a very special announcement later this week!).

Lastly, if you still haven’t donated to my campaign, please consider doing so now! More important than how much you contribute is that you do contribute since I need to get donations from 250 Portland residents to qualify for public financing, so I welcome amounts as low as $5!
This is Our City, Our Future –– and together, I know we can make it better.
