The charter commission election here in Portland is important.
We are voting on representatives to a commission that could update our charter–changing the very nature of how our city is governed. That means changing how city decisions are made and what kind of future is possible for us all. It’s true: the winners of this election will re-write Portland’s future.
Will they write a future that is more democratic, or less? More transparent, or less? More just, or less?
That will be up to them, but for right now it’s up to us. Before we put our future in their hands, we get to shape the Commission with our votes and our actions.
VOTES: Early voting is open and Election Day is June 8. Find candidate and voting information on our charter website, and remember: VOTE DEMOCRAT FOR CHARTER.
