Howard Weiner intends to run for the Portland city council seat that will be vacated when Sam Adams runs for mayor. He needs 1000 registered Portland voters to make $5 contributions by January 31, 2008 to qualify him for the ballot.
Howard owns Cal Skate and has has been a longtime advocate for skateparks in Portland in addition to other services to the community. The Portland skateboarding community has benefitted from support of the mayor and the city commissioners. With skateboarding supporter Mayor Potter leaving and Sam Adams running for Mayor, it would be a good idea to support a pro-skateboarding candidate. We still have a lot of work to do on the skatepark system and we don’t want the issue to be pushed to the back burner by regime change.
