TONIGHT: Mayoral Debate Will Focus on Economic Development for Communities of Color
“As Portland grapples with population growth, increased construction activity and needed infrastructure changes in the transportation system, our next mayor must be prepared with strategies to address the disparities in jobs, housing, and transportation that exist for Portland’s communities of color.”—NAMC-Oregon
Tonight, the Oregon chapter of the National Association of Minority Contractors will host a mayoral debate focusing on economic development and Portland’s communities of color.
