Former Multnomah County Commissioner Loretta Smith’s experience managing the federal budget portfolio for Senator Wyden and time on the Multnomah County Commission make her well positioned to grapple with Portland’s impending budget shortfalls. With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing and future federal bailout dollars uncertain, Portlanders need a commissioner who is able to build on the legacy of Nick Fish and make difficult decisions to achieve budget stability. With her wealth of experience working to support Portland’s most vulnerable citizens, Loretta is the right person to respond to the calls for reform and equity and will help the city heal. While other politicians are guided solely by political dogma, Loretta is a capable facilitator, who is able to bring disparate sides together on thorny issues. As we grapple with the pandemic and associated economic downturn, we need smart pragmatists like Loretta who will work to achieve city governance reform while ensuring enough new homes are built to meet continuing demand.
Loretta’s experience working in support of homeownership, housing, homelessness, our youth and seniors, education, and equity, makes her the candidate who will hit the ground running on August 12th. She will spend each and every day fighting to make tangible change in Portland for everyone and especially the most vulnerable in our community. Please visit Loretta’s website to learn more.
