Tuesday, January 9, 2024 (PORTLAND, ORE.) – Commissioner Carmen Rubio Tuesday  announced her candidacy to be Portland’s next mayor. Her decision follows months of thoughtful conversations about what this city and community members need from their next mayor. 

“I made my decision with the full recognition of where we are as a city. And we need a mayor who will take responsibility for the way forward. One with a track record of building bridges, focusing our city’s energy into a force for change, and getting results,” Carmen said. “Portlanders deserve a mayor who will take us into our future without drama – just hard, collaborative work, especially on community safety, homelessness and housing. That’s how I’ve led as a commissioner, and how I will do so as Portland’s next mayor. This is our opportunity to do so much more.”

“I know that Portland’s best days are still ahead – that solutions are within reach. When government, nonprofits, businesses and individual Portlanders work together, we can do amazing things for our amazing city,” Carmen said. “And building a vibrant, thriving and economically healthy Portland must include all of our neighborhoods and communities aligned and moving forward in the same direction."
