It took many volunteers from multiple neighborhood groups to manage Thursday’s Portland City Council forum hosted by the Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association.

Twenty four candidates attended, the room was nearly full, and we had a good crowd tune in for the livestream. A recording of the livestream is here, and the forum begins at about 1:21:00.

Village Portland was happy to participate, and give folks who couldn’t make it a chance to meet the candidates.

Thanks to all the organizers and volunteers who worked to make this event successful.
