Commissioner Fish's life to be celebrated Feb. 8 at PSU
A celebration of Commissioner Nick Fish's life will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, in Hollman Hall at Portland State University.
Fish died of stomach cancer on Jan. 2. A special election to choose his replacement will be held in the May 19 primary. If no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote, a run-off election will be held on Aug. 11.
Sonia Schmanski, Fish's chief of staff, said PSU will announce more details on the event next week.
Fish has served on the City Council since winning the special election to replace former Commissioner Erik Sten in May 2008.
