The world is changing and the great City of Portland will not be left behind at this critical juncture in our collective future. Many residents of Portland feel alienated from the establishment and the Cities politics and regressive policies that have quagmire of today. Our City has experienced a record high rate of childhood hunger, lack of graduating youth, homelessness and qualified and employable residents. There is hope for tomorrow. There is a hope for tomorrow. There is a vision for the future. There is a great Portland on the horizon. This is the reason our platform of Knowledge, Resource, Resolution resonates with so many people looking for the source of their solution. I plan to bring the voice of the general public to our City Council and by working with seasoned commissioners and a capable Mayor I feel we can bridge the gap between our politics and the people that it represents.
