Michael Bourque: Workforce development will be a priority for Thibodeau

“Spencer is also committed to resolving our workforce housing shortage by prioritizing development for those who may work in our restaurants and coffee shops, or who are starting small businesses or careers with a larger employer. Growing this sector will give Portland the balance it needs.”

“Finally, I believe Spencer’s leadership ability will create a working majority on our council and lead to initiatives that enable Portland to live up to its promise, to support all of its people, in all parts of the city, from taxpayers to renters, and Portlanders old and new.”
