Region welcomes new leadership in the new year
With the start of 2017, there are new elected leaders in key positions in jurisdictions in which the Alliance frequently works. Ted Wheeler was sworn in as Portland’s new mayor on Jan. 3, and Chloe Eudaly took the commission seat previously held by Steve Novick. At Multnomah County, three new commissioners were sworn in, including Sharon Meieran, Jessica Vega Pederson and Lori Stegmann. Clackamas County has a new commission chair in Jim Bernard. Additionally, Steve Callaway was sworn in as the new mayor of the city of Hillsboro. The Alliance will continue to work closely with these jurisdictions and looks forward to building strong relationships with new elected leaders.
