Dan Saltzman
Strong, Independent Leadership for Us

Dan Saltzman is our strong, independent voice for the needs of Portland's families and accountability at City Hall.

Protecting Our Children

Dan created the Portland Children's Levy, which protects kids from abuse and neglect and helps them succeed in school. He prevented juvenile crime and gang violence by steering youth to productive summer jobs. He developed new solutions to domestic violence, keeping families safer.

“Dan Saltzman has been a hero for children. His leadership has improved the lives of 16,000 of Portland's neediest children each year.”
Stand for Children

Defending Our Interests

When big telecommunications companies refused to pay millions of dollars owed to the city, Dan made them pay their fair share. He also cracked down on predatory payday lenders.

“Dan Saltzman stood up for Portlanders by standing up to powerful corporate special interests. He is the clear choice for hardworking middle class families”
Northwest Oregon Labor Council, AFL-CIO

Watching Our Bottom Line

Dan fixed the trouble-plagued Water Bureau billing system that was costing us millions, is bringing the “Big Pipe” sewer construction project in on-time and under budget and is the Council's tough watchdog on fraud and abuse.

Dan is also focused on economic recovery, helping establish Portland as a leader in the sustainable economy.

“From Airport Way to small businesses all over Portland, Dan Saltzman has focused on delivering jobs where they are needed most.”
Roy Jay, President of African American Chamber of Commerce
