2013 Mid-Year report - July 2, 2013

The first six months of 2013 have been marked by big changes, new challenges, and much to celebrate.

 

First, the big news: Mayor Hales has asked me to lead two new bureaus – the Water Bureau and the Bureau of Environmental Services.  He has also asked me to serve as Council liaison to Venture Portland, Elders in Action, and the Regional Arts and Culture Council.

 

Last month, the Council approved a balanced budget that reflects our community's best values: preserving the safety net, investing in strong neighborhoods and healthy small businesses, supporting older adults and youth, collaborating with our public and private partners, and preserving our fire stations and patrol officers.

 

As I move to my new assignments, I’d like to thank our stellar community partners and the talented teams at the Portland Housing Bureau and Portland Parks & Recreation for five great years.

 

It is an honor to serve as your City Commissioner. As always, thanks for all you do to make Portland a better place.
 
Happy Independence Day!
