BBPDX Convenes Members for Affordable Housing Workgroup

Last week, BBPDX members came together at our office for our Affordable Housing Workgroup event to learn more about the proposed $652.8 million general obligation bond that Portland-area voters will consider in November.

A special thanks to our guest speakers Jes Larson from Metro, measure opponent Gerard Mildner from Portland State University, and measure proponent Beckie Lee from Yes! For Affordable Housing.

Ultimately, the workgroup overwhelmingly recommended that BBPDX proceed with our first-ever ballot measure endorsement. Our next step is to secure approval from the BBPDX Board of Directors next week. Once a decision is made, BBPDX will notify all of our members. 

In the meantime, if you or your company would like to provide an individual or company endorsement of the measure, you can do so here
