Portland Mayor Charlie Hales has been in his job for a little more than a year now. He spoke with OPB’s Think Out Loud Host David Miller Wednesday about a number of issues he’s worked on in that time, including reforms to the city’s police accountability system.
Miller asked whether Hales agreed with a recommendation that an independent review panel should have the power to interview officers involved in shootings. The city ultimately didn’t secure that authority.
The mayor also talked about his approach to homelessness, problems with the Portland Building and other city issues. You can listen to the entire interview at opb.org/thinkoutloud.
