Give change a chance. Change takes time.

The new elected mayor in Portland is a big change. It takes time for old problems to work themselves out and for traditional roles and relationships to reform.

Michael Brennan’s vision and character have already been vetted and approved by Portland voters in a robust campaign. Portland has a new all-star city manager who is ready to work with the mayor. Many City Council seats are turning over with fresh faces who are ready to work with an elected mayor.

Give change a chance. Join me in electing Mayor Brennan to a second term.
