At my campaign kickoff in early June, I asked my supporters to fill out a map of Portland with key words of what our city means to them. This is a question that I try to ask every voter and neighbor with whom I speak about my campaign: What are the best parts of our city? What are your hopes for Portland's future? Concerns?
Some of the same answers keep coming up. People love our food, the walkability of our downtown area, our schools, and most of all, our people. They are excited about our city changing and growing, but want to make sure we preserve our unique quality of life. Click the photo to the left to see a few of the maps, and stay tuned for more!
