Candidate Conversation: Portland City Commissioner

Pete Springer/OPB

This election day, Portland voters will decide between the top two candidates for Portland City Commissioner Position No. 1: current City Commissioner Amanda Fritz and her challenger, Oregon State Representative Mary Nolan (D-Portland). Nolan and Fritz fought a fierce battle in the primary for this nonpartisan seat, and their general election contest has followed a similar pattern.

There’s arguably more differences between these two candidates than between the men vying for votes in the more high-profile mayoral race. Fritz and Nolan have sparred over police accountability, economic issues, the arts tax and more.

Are you a Portland voter? Have you decided how you’ll cast your ballot in this race? What questions do you have for the candidates?
