POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Nick visits with Students from the Middle East and North Africa - July 26, 2013

 

This morning, Nick welcomed students from the Middle East and North Africa to City Hall.

 

The students are studying at Portland State University thanks to a U.S Department of State / Middle East Partnership Initiative grant. The grant brings 18 undergraduate leaders from 14 different Middle East and North African countries to study civic engagement and community leadership in the Portland Metropolitan region.

 

Nick talked with the students about Portland’s unique commission form of government, his work as a legislator, executive, and judge for the city all wrapped in one, and the future of Portland.

 

Thank you to Dr. Kevin Kecskes and Dr. Christopher Carey from PSU for connecting us with these great future international leaders.
