Why I'm running
I'm Chris Flanary and I'm running for Portland City Council District 3. I believe in the common good, that investing in people is the way forward, and that we all do better when our communities are strong.
I'm running because I love Portland.
I’m not running because I have political aspirations beyond city council - I already have a career, working to build affordable housing in our community. I’m running because I can’t just stand by and do nothing. We have all watched Portland's leaders prioritize profits and politics over people for too long. I'm running because I want to change the conversation. I believe that people are not problems - people have problems, and problems have solutions. We need people in office who will do what works, put money where it counts, and remain true to the ideal that everyone deserves a good life. I'm running because I have the tenacity, perseverance, and passion to work for what's right. I hope you join me, vote for me for District 3, and let's get to work.
