Spencer Thibodeau has deep Portland roots…

Adopted by a loving family in Portland when he was three weeks old, Spencer Thibodeau grew up in Portland’s Libbytown neighborhood where his parents still reside.  The son of a carpenter and a nurse, Spencer was raised with a hard work ethic reflecting the middle class neighborhood he grew up in.

The Right Experience. Real Results.

Spencer was first elected to the Portland City Council in 2015, where he represented District 2 (Oakdale, Parkside, and West End neighborhoods) and fought for safety and infrastructure improvements for Reiche School, action on climate change, and Portland’s first protected bike lane.

Spencer was re-elected to the Council in 2018 with over 67% of the vote, a resounding referendum on his first term as councilor.

Throughout his first four years on the Council, Spencer has a proven track record of success and being able to collaborate to get things done.
