And much of our growth has been at the expense of the unique culture and nature of our city. Our city is becoming increasingly unlivable and we need new leadership to correct this course. As both an attorney and a software developer, it has been my job to understand and develop solutions for complex problems – it is these skills I will bring to put Portland back on course.
