Rockwood advocate announces council run
A longtime Gresham resident and community advocate has announced her intent to run for Gresham City Council in the upcoming November election.
Dina DiNucci brings 15 years of volunteer work and experience as a small business owner to her candidacy to help lead Gresham in the coming years. She wants to bring equitable representation for individuals and neighborhoods across the community.
"It is not equitable when park maintenance is dependent on the neighborhood, or when the majority of amenities are built in one neighborhood," DiNucci said. "Why do some neighbors get pulled over for no light on their bicycle and not others?,"
DiNucci has been involved with organizations and events across the Rockwood and West Gresham area. She was appointed to the Mayor's Blue Ribbon Safety Committee; served as the neighborhood restoration chair for the Department of Justice; volunteered with the Rockwood Weed and Seed program; was co-chair for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life; co-founder of the Rockwood Business Coalition; and vice-chair with the Centennial Neighborhood Association.
DiNucci is currently working for the Multnomah County Health Department as a case investigator in epidemiology. She worked for the city of Gresham for 10 years and has worked in social service/government ever since.
She lives in Gresham since 1999, where she raised her two now grown children and is a proud grandmother.
