Fair Elections Portland Files Suit Against the City of Portland

NOVEMBER 17, 2021

Fair Elections Portland (FEP) and 15 Portland voters filed suit against the City of Portland over the City’s continued refusal to place a ballot question before voters.

The ballot question seeks to allow Portland Voters a chance to vote on a charter amendment to create a Clean Elections system for Mayor, City Council, and School Board races.

“The people of Portland deserve the chance to vote on this measure. They followed all the legal requirements and there is tremendous public support for this measure,” said FEP attorney John Brautigam. “We are going back to court to protect their right, and that of others who care about democracy. We refuse to let the City’s obstruction be the last word.” Read more here.
