Purpose

Help identify the skills and abilities community members want in Portland’s mayoral and city council candidates.

Other details
Portland voters deserve to know whether mayoral and city council candidates have the skills, temperament, and wisdom to serve our community effectively if we elect them.

Join other Portlanders for a unique community forum in which community members will share their experiences working with city council members and use this information to identify the skills and abilities we want and need in our elected city leaders.

A wide range of community and neighborhood organizations have joined together to sponsor this forum. The forum co-sponsors will use the input from the forum to develop a list of desired skills and sample questions community organizations and individual voters can use to help them evaluate mayoral and city council candidates.

The forum planning committee will collect input from the forum and produce a report that will describe important skills and abilities and offer sample questions individuals and organizations can use to explore candidates qualifications for the job.
