Citizens for Portland's Water  
 
 
  The Clean Money Candidate

Unlike other candidates, I am
accepting no out of state contributions or any contributions from those who want special access to policy makers.
 
My goal is to make it possible
for citizens to have their opinions count and their concerns taken into
consideration when
decisions that affect them and their community are being made.
That's the right track for Portland.

For too long, the City of Portland has been addicted to spending  and  addicted  to debt.  Spending too much on projects with little or no measurable benefit for the community residents, encouraging an atmosphere of cronyism and exclusion. This has led to the city having financial  struggles and no real vision for a better economic future.

 

         As Mayor of Portland, I will focus on three key areas:

·         Accountability in City Government and Spending

·     Economic Stability for Citizens and Businesses

·         A Vision for Portland’s Future Prosperity and Job Creation

 

               Thank you for visiting my website and I hope you will
       sign up to support my  campaign to make Portland a better place
       to live for all of us.
