An Opportunity for Gresham City Council

We are realizing unexpected and important shifts in leadership, policies, and laws. This is a time of opportunity for Gresham City Council.

Over the last two weeks, Gresham’s mayor, city manager, chief of police, and a planning commissioner have resigned or retired. News and social media are buzzing with these stories—and with misinformation. Gresham residents deserve honest, transparent, and accountable leadership. I am committed to giving you the facts so you can make informed choices.

Gresham residents need stability restored quickly as well as a roadmap to a vibrant, welcoming, and united Gresham. I invite you to join me in this process.

Keeping Gresham on Track

By showing up and working together, we can keep Gresham on track, and we can do it in a way that strengthens our community. Here are some of our opportunities.

  • We can reimagine how Gresham addresses public safety.
  • Our community can take action to support racial equity.
  • We can work to address a looming budget crisis.
  • We can have a qualified, in-house candidate step into the role of city manager.

We have a Special City Council Meeting (online) on Monday, June 29. I anticipate we will select a mayor pro tem to serve until a new mayor can be elected in November. We have plenty of work ahead. It’s a great time to start making your voice heard and be part of the solution.
