Breakfast Forum: Catalyst for Change: Portland Charter Reform

Thursday, November 16, 2023 (8:30 AM - 10:00 AM) (PST)


Approved by 57 percent of voters in November 2022, Ballot Measure 26-228 includes ranked-choice voting, geographic districts, a bigger city council and new leadership roles. 

The City of Portland will host its first election using geographic districts and ranked-choice voting in November 2024. Along the way, key milestones will ensure the project is on track. 

A workplan was developed to guide the implementation of voter-approved changes to Portland's city government. The recently passed charter reform has reshaped the landscape of Portland's governance, and its impact on the upcoming elections is significant. 

Join us at the "Catalyst for Change: Portland Charter Reform Forum" to receive a status update on the reform in the works, discuss its implications for the upcoming elections, and discover how you can play a pivotal role in ensuring a more responsive, equitable, and resilient Portland.
