Portland Parks Foundation City Council Candidate Forum

July 15, 2020 at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

A virtual happy hour forum on parks with Dan Ryan and Loretta Smith, candidates for Portland City Council
About this Event

On August 11, Portlanders will cast their votes for City Council Position 2, the seat formerly held by late Commissioner Nick Fish. There’s a lot at stake. The winner will be seated soon after the election. Will he or she be assigned to Portland Parks & Recreation? That’s the Mayor’s call.

But we’ll find out what the candidates love about parks and what changes they’d bring to the bureau as Parks Commissioner. So, pour yourself a glass of your favorite beverage and tune in for a Zoom forum with Dan and Loretta!
