Decisions Are In Your Hands

Rising crime Homelessness on our streets Environmental issues Regulations and new taxes

Elected officials, at every level, impact our businesses.


·    The Multnomah County Chair controlled our ability to do business during COVID 19.

·    State Representatives decide on taxes and regulations.

·    City Council sits in position to impact public safety finances and homeless solutions.


As a business owner, we have little time during our day to dig deep into who is running for office. Yet their decisions determine our ability to be a successful business owner.


An efficient way to learn directly from local candidates is to attend the Business and Leaders Luncheon.
