Currently I'm running for City Commissioner Seat #1 because I got sick of watching City Hall drop the ball on many issues. Now it's coming down to the elections are under 2 months away. With little money and not being invited to key debates, what is my outlook. Well I definately do not plan on stopping, but I need help NOW. Unless you want somebody, who is getting thousands of dollars from developers. Where is the grassroots in local politics because as much as I would like to be, I'm not a one man army.
I'm the person supporting Peace Camp bring down food.
I'm the person pounding the pavement getting the PUD initiative on the ballot.
I'm the person who is at Social/labor Actions from Justice for Janitors to FTAA/WTO rallies.
I'm the person who was against the War in Iraq before it even started and attended every major anti-war march and many of the smaller ones.
I'm the person who has been on the receiving end of police violence.
I'm the person volunteering at FreeGeek and other non-profits.
I'm the person supporting KBOO.
I'm the person who was against covering the reservoir from the get go and wrote up alternative plans.
I'm the candidate who did not even know City Commissioner was a paid position when I decided to run.
I'm the candidate who worked on the Portland Bill of Rights Committee, which got the City Council to adhere to your Bill of Rights.
I'm the candidate with no real political career to think about, other than making Portland better for everybody. I believe in community more than government.
Looking for people that want a better Portland. I need help with canvasing, research, phone tree, getting press and invitations, printing and design of posters, and anything else you can think of to help my grassroots campaign. Even if I do not win, I would like to setup a local politics watchdog group.
