Portland Business Alliance

The Portland Business Alliance board of directors today announced its endorsement of Eileen Brady for Mayor of Portland. “Eileen Brady will bring a fresh perspective as well as a business perspective to City Hall,” said J. Isaac, chair of the Alliance’s board of directors. “Throughout this process, we asked candidates about their views on private-sector job retention and creation, and Eileen has demonstrated to us that she supports our jobs agenda and is committed to improving our economy.”

The board also endorsed Rod Underhill for Multnomah County District Attorney. The board did not take a position in the primary election for Portland City Council Positions 1 and 4 or in the 1st Congressional District general election.

Alliance board endorsements are based on a process that includes candidate interviews conducted by its endorsement committee, followed by a vote by the full board. Two-thirds of the board members present must support an endorsement.
