United for Portland is one of the largest and most politically diverse coalitions in Portland history uniting employers, community advocates, labor unions, and environmental activists. Every member of our group has evaluated the candidates for mayor and concluded that Ted Wheeler is still the best choice for Mayor. Here is what some of our members have to say about this critical race:

“Our City is facing unprecedented challenges, and the only way we can move forward is by working with leaders who can bring us together. Mayor Wheeler has worked to put climate at the center of the agenda: resolving to transition our city to 100% renewable energy by 2050 and implementing the Portland Clean Energy Fund.”

-Doug Moore, Executive Director of Oregon League of Conservation Voters.

  

“We need leaders who are consistent and honest in their positions, humble when they make mistakes, and are willing to work with people they sometimes disagree with. Mayor Wheeler will put support for small businesses first in our recovery from the economic impacts of the coronavirus.” ”

-Diane Economaki, President of Fuze7 Marketing and small business representative on the board of Portland Business Alliance.

 

“Mayor Wheeler believes we should build back better as we recover from the economic impacts of the coronavirus. We need that leadership as we begin to recover and plan for the shape of our city. ”

-Willy Myers, Executive Secretary Treasurer of the Columbia Pacific Building Trades.
