I’ve been honored to represent North Deering, Riverton and Deering Center on the Portland City Council for the past three years. As I retire, I’m pleased that Kim Cook is running for the District 5 seat. Kim is exactly the type of leader Portland needs: smart and experienced, with a pragmatic and collaborative approach to addressing our challenges.

Kim is a parent of children attending our public schools, a property taxpayer, active in the community and a business owner. Kim understands the importance of balancing city and school priorities and budgets, while keeping property taxes under control to ensure that Portland continues to be a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.

Kim Cook will be a strong voice on the council, and I encourage my District 5 neighbors to vote for her in November.
