No one is more qualified to lead Metro than David Bragdon

Made Metro Accountable
Presiding over the Metro Council, David implemented the toughest ethics standards in Oregon. Councilors must report large campaign contributions before votes, ending back-room deals.

Kate Schiele
A Facilitator, Not a Dictator

“Metro needs a leader not afraid to scale back the council’s power. I want to steer it towards consensus with local communities, not confrontation. Let’s give neighborhoods a voice in their development.” Kate Schiele

“Kate Schiele knows it’s high time we were heard. We have a lot to protect and much to prevent. We need someone who balances demands for additional housing with the need for open spaces. Kate will include us in her planning.”
Lonnie Roberts, Multnomah County Commissioner

Real Solutions to Real Problems

“Some mass transit – of course! Throw you out of your car – of course not! Metro’s priority must be to get our people, our goods, and our services moving safely, efficiently and on time.” Kate Schiele

“Kate has a tremendous understanding of the need to invest in new roads and widening and repairing of existing ones. She knows that one size does not fit all.” Larry Haverkamp, Metro Joint Policy Advisory Committee on Transportation

Kate Schiele
Business – A Brand New Approach

“METRO should give business a leg up, not a slap in the face. Our public policy and the planning process should attract new jobs and allow businesses to thrive.” Kate Schiele

“How refreshing to have someone at the helm who will embrace the business community and include us during the planning stages. I urge your vote for Kate Schiele.” Edward C. Tonkin, VP & General Counsel of Ron Tonkin Dealerships
