Dear Friends and Neighbors,

JVP and Bonamici

My first 100 days as Multnomah County Chair have been filled with action and collaboration, and I want to take a moment at this milestone to reflect on the work completed, and the work ahead. Here are some key highlights from these first 100 days:

In addition, my office is collaborating closely with the city of Portland and our new governor on housing, homelessness, behavioral health and public safety issues, and I am hopeful that our shared efforts will result in better results across those issue areas and others.

In the coming weeks, I will release my first proposed budget, detailing much needed investments and programs to address our communities most pressing needs. Much work has gone into this budget, and I’m excited to share the proposal with you.

I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished to date, and excited for the work ahead. I hope you are as well.
