Fern Elledge (right) and Commissioner Jules Bailey

“Although Fern is a new member of our Multnomah County Department of Community Services Citizen Budget Advisory Committee, she stepped to the plate and hit a homerun in managing the production of our committee report.

She showed great leadership, enthusiasm and vigor to intervene in a timely manner, when our group critically  needed a volunteer in the absence of our Citizen Budget Advisory Committee chair. Kudos!!”
