PORTLAND, Ore. – Today, the Portland Business Alliance board of directors announced its candidate endorsements for Clackamas County Commission. The Alliance board endorsed Paul Savas for Commission District 2 and Jim Bernard for Commission District 5.

“The board believes Clackamas County will benefit from leadership with strong business backgrounds,” said Sandra McDonough, president & CEO of the Portland Business Alliance. “Both candidates have demonstrated a commitment to family-wage job creation and retention, as well as the need for infrastructure investment to support business expansion.”

The board also made endorsements in races in the City of Portland, State Legislature, Multnomah County, Washington County and Metro.  A full list of endorsements can be found on the Alliance endorsements page.

Alliance board endorsements are based on a process that includes interviewing the viable candidates for the political office and asking them to complete a Value of Jobs candidate questionnaire.  Two-thirds of the board members present at the meeting where endorsements are decided must agree before an endorsement is made.
