Tuesday, April 5, 2022, 5:30–7:00 PM, hosted on Zoom (link below)

The Multnomah County Chair is often an “under the radar” election despite the significant power and influence that this position holds in our local government. Our coalition has organized the forum to raise awareness of this election within our community in order to better inform their decision around this election. The forum will also offer an opportunity for the public to directly address questions and concerns to the candidates.

Code Change Update from Commissioner Chloe Eudaly

From Office of Community and Civic Life: 

Yesterday, Commissioner Chloe Eudaly announced that she has decided to present the proposed code changes as a report on November 14. She indicated that this will allow Council more time to consider the facts and have a public conversation before taking it to a vote on the final package. “In making this announcement, I want to be very clear that I intend to see these policy changes through to completion in a timely manner. The changes proposed by Committee 3.96 reflect a transformative vision for the City’s approach to civic engagement and deserve fair consideration. We can no longer claim to believe in equity but refuse to update the code accordingly. However, heartfelt questions and concerns have been raised about what the new system may look like and how it will work—and I want to be able to answer them before advancing these changes.”
