This morning, Charlie Hales was publicly sworn in as Portland’s 52nd Mayor.
Mayor Hales begins his administration with three priorities – wisely spending taxpayer dollars, ensuring public safety and a good community relationship with police, and great public education.
Newly-elected Commissioner Steve Novick was sworn in on January 1 at the Multnomah Arts Center.
