Description: On a periodic basis, the City of Portland “lifts up the hood” and evaluates its City Charter, looking at opportunities for improvements. The Charter is our constitution, establishing the rules and regulations that guide city governance. 2021 is such a time (the last was in 2009-2010), when a new Commission will sit and review the Charter.
The changes recommended by this Commission may be small, they may be large, but they all will have long-term implications for how our city is run, and how we interact with City Hall. In June there will be elections across Portland, including District 4, to send individuals to the Charter Commission. Don’t forget to vote!
