OPB: Eudaly officially running for another term
It's official: Portland City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly will be seeking reelection.
The commissioner stopped by OPB's "Think Out Loud" Thursday to discuss the sweeping changes she has planned for the city's neighborhood associations and community groups. Asked by the show's host, Dave Miller, what she thought would happen to her vision should she be out of the position next year, Eudaly said she was hoping to stick around for more than that.
"I am, in fact, running again," said Eudaly, noting this was her first day making the "official" announcement.
The first-term commissioner has made plenty of unofficial announcements, however. Her communications director, Margaux Weeke, said Eudaly's already confirmed her candidacy to multiple media outlets and plans to hold an official kickoff in early 2020.
In a Facebook post published just after Thanksgiving, Eudaly said she was assembling a new campaign team and building "a shiny new website." The commissioner's old campaign website from 2016 is no longer functional.
The post also gave a preview of what Eudaly will seek to highlight from her four years overseeing Portland's Bureau of Transportation and the Office of Community & Civic Life.
