A New Campaign Web Site Will Be Live Soon!
This morning I filed as a candidate for Multnomah County Commissioner, Position 2.
County government is where many of the issues closest to my heart are discussed: health and human services, public education, and public safety.
As a Multnomah County Commissioner, I intend to be a full time representative of the people working for a better and more prosperous community.
Running for county commissioner was not what I had planned to do when I woke up this morning. But this rare opportunity has become available and my experience of over twenty years working with local government, non-profits and the religious community would benefit the work of Multnomah County.
I know the issues and know the people.
My assumption is that a number of candidates will file by the 5 pm deadline today and that they will all be good people who are qualified to serve in public office. Multnomah County has an abundance of talent and I look forward to having a conversation with voters that honors Multnomah County’s long history of thoughtful debate.
During a time of deep economic turmoil and a lack of solid leadership in some parts of the county this campaign should be about how we build a future worthy of our children.
I hope you will join me in this effort.
