Michael Brennan will convene a special meeting of the City Council on Wednesday to deliver the final State of the City address of his first term as Portland’s first popularly elected mayor in 90 years.

This year’s address – Brennan’s third – comes after the re-election of Gov. Paul LePage and could foreshadow the city’s relationship with state leaders, and reveal local priorities, in the upcoming year.

Brennan and LePage have clashed over a series of policy issues, including the governor’s effort to cut off certain groups of immigrants from state-funded General Assistance. LePage’s new budget proposal also could have profound effects in Portland, on one hand by eliminating state aid to the city and on the other by giving the city the ability to tax some nonprofit groups, such as hospitals, that currently do not pay any property tax.

The annual State of the City address is required under a series of changes to the City Charter approved by voters in 2010 to switch from a mayor who is appointed by fellow councilors to one elected by citizens. Portlanders will choose a new mayor in November, which means this could be Brennan’s last annual address – unless he decides to run for re-election and wins.

In an interview Monday, Brennan declined to provide any specifics before his speech, which he said he was still preparing. But Brennan said he plans to talk about affordable housing, economic development, education, energy and transportation, among other topics.

Asked if he plans to unveil any major policy proposals this year, as he did with his minimum wage push last year, Brennan said he would leave it to others to define what constitutes a “major” initiative. But Brennan added: “There will be significant proposals.”

His 2014 address included a proposal to make Portland one of a small number of American cities that have a minimum wage higher than the rest of their states.

The proposal would increase the minimum wage from $7.50 to $9.50 within the city. It is currently before the City Council’s Finance Committee, which postponed a vote on Dec. 11 until it was provided an assessment about how higher wages would affect local businesses, some of which oppose the idea.

Also in his annual address last year, which came after Portlanders overwhelmingly voted in support of legalizing marijuana and as the city noticed an increase in heroin use, Brennan announced that the city needed to do more to combat substance abuse. The mayor’s Substance Abuse Subcommittee has been meeting since October to discuss substance abuse prevention, treatment and recovery.
