In other news: Charter commissioner Candace Avalos will run for City Council


CHARTER COMMISSIONER CANDACE AVALOS WILL RUN FOR CITY COUNCIL: Five more Portlanders this week joined races for the 12 City Council seats up for grabs next year. The most notable is Candace Avalos, 34, who served on the 20-member Charter Commission that put together the ballot measure that voters approved last fall to overhaul the city’s form of government. Avalos, who serves as executive director of the climate justice nonprofit Verde, is the third member of the Charter Commission to declare a run for City Council after shaping the new government structure. (The first two were Robin Ye and Debbie Kitchin.)
