Q Center’s Mayoral Forum Tonight


By Erin Rook, PQ Monthly


Is there a ballot starting to collect dust on your shelf? Feeling overwhelmed by a Portland mayoral race with 23 candidates?

Tonight at Q Center, meet all the candidates (who decide to show up) — not just the ones who’ve raised the most money. Like Q Center, PQ Monthly will not be making political endorsements. Instead, we encourage you to do your homework.

Brush up on the three “major” candidates as well as queer candidate Cameron Whitten in the current issue of PQ and join us tonight at “Meet the Candidates 2012 – The Search for Portland’s Next Mayor,” 6-9 p.m. at Q Center.

Each candidate will also have a chance to briefly state their platform before answering questions from moderator and executive director Barbara McCullough-Jones. You can submit your questions by commenting here, emailing info@pdxqcenter.org with the subject line “Candidate Forum,” or bringing them to the event. There is no guarantee that all questions submitted will be asked.
