With last night's election results, our campaign for Mayor comes to an end. But we'll never stop fighting for the future of our city.
I'm incredibly grateful to everyone that helped out on this campaign. You did it because you love this city, and care about its future. That's why I ran. And that hasn't changed.
We have so much more to do, and I hope everyone will dig in and bring their talents and gifts to serve the city of Portland.
Congratulations to Mayor-elect Ted Wheeler on not just running a great race, but on leading on the issues that matter to Portlanders. He will be a great Mayor and he has my full support.
I'm proud of the campaign we ran. I'm proud of the way we organized. I'm proud of the debate that we gave the people of Portland.
As for me, I've got a job to finish at Multnomah County, and a lot of work to do on solving homelessness and other county issues through the end of the year. I'm also looking forward to spending a lot more time this summer taking August to the park. I'll see you by the swingsets!
