Long time Portland community activist, skateshop owner and skateboarding supporter (duh!) Howard Weiner has dropped out of the race for Portland City Council. He is endorsing candidate Jim Middaugh who happens to be Chief of Staff for City Commissioner Erik Sten. This is disappointing for Portland’s public skatepark skate scene, and it raises two obvious questions. First, can I get my $5 back? And second, will this set a precedent of City Commissioner Chief of Staffs running for office – meaning when can we expect SPS board member and Sam Adams‘ Chief of Staff, Tom Miller to make a run for it?

  1. Brendan Finn who’s running for city council is also a skate advocate and was partially responsible for getting the ban lifted on skateboards downtown.

    I’ve got no opinion on whether or not he would be good for that seat but just thought I’d let that be known. Bummer about Howard, I was stoked on that.
