Primary Ballot Review:
Washington County Commission

The election to chair the Washington County Board of Commissioners pits two women who both identify as "progressive" against each other, but ...

The incumbent has ruffled many feathers, including her former chief of staff who the county paid $80,000 to avoid a lawsuit. But, the challenger believes building new freeways should be considered an option in addressing traffic concerns and has been endorsed by numerous business organizations and police.

May 3 PDX.Vote published my reporting on the two women, plus a look at the candidates for District 2.

I explain who gets my vote for chair, and why, on my blog.
"Tide Pool"
