Congratulations to Portland’s new Mayor Charlie Hales and his new City Council, who were sworn in to office and began work last week.
We love that the new mayor and council are committed to keeping Portland pedestrian-friendly, and want to build on Portland’s success as a great destination city for visitors, entrepreneurs and, yes, even new residents.
With a great blend of experience and outsiders’ perspectives, we’re looking forward to great things from our city’s elected leaders.
We have only one request of them.
Keep Portland Weird.
