In January, 2020, the participating members of EPAP approved five questions to send to all candidates running for Mayor and City Council in the May, 2020, primary election. The candidates were asked to address several issues of concern to East Portland residents, including jobs, housing, and safe streets, and were given the opportunity to share their vision of East Portland's future. Their responses are in the links below.
This election will reshape our City government for years to come. We hope that these responses will help East Portland community members and our allies throughout Portland to cast an informed vote in this important election.
