Statements from the Oregon: 2012 Portland City Council's race

Says "as Co-Chair of the Joint Ways & Means Committee, I secured the key piece of funding for" the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail project bridge."

Says she "oversaw an audit that won the city $2 million in franchise fees."

Says Amanda Fritz "manages less than 5 percent of city operations."

Says she is "saving ratepayers $6 million/year."

Says "Amanda Fritz publicly claimed to be endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon, both on her website and in the voter’s guide." 

Says "my advocacy questioning contracting out in Parks … delayed and altered the renewal of the Brooks contract, and reduced the number of contracted employees in Parks from over 100 to fewer than 40."

Says more than 8,000 people have supported her campaign as volunteers, donors and advisors and endorsers.

Says that "In 2009, I saved ratepayers around $500 million by persuading the Council to pursue a less expensive compliance mechanism if the City is required to treat Bull Run drinking water."

Says she helped lead the launch of curbside recycling.

Says "in the Legislature, (Mary Nolan) has been a party-line Democrat, showing a 100% track record in harmony with the American Civil Liberties Union."
