I am writing in support of at-large Portland City Council candidate Joey Brunelle.

I’ve observed Joey for the past two years as he has evolved into a committed civic leader and a reasoned voice for progressive change. He has worked tirelessly to gain both deep knowledge regarding the issues Portland faces and a wide breadth of potential solutions by becoming familiar with case studies of similar-sized cities with similar challenges. He will hit the deck running.

Joey is at ease with and respectful toward all elements of the Portland community. He has the courage to take a stand and the ability to articulate his position clearly. This is evidenced in his website – check it out. You’ll find that Joey is a strong advocate for progressive change in housing, employment, homelessness, education and city government.

Please take advantage of opportunities to meet and talk with Joey and give him your vote on Election Day.
