Our City. Our Future. Our Choice.

The Portland Mercury, in their endorsement: “Perhaps most impressive are Iannarone’s extensive policy proposals for Portland—detailed, data-informed documents informed by area experts and promising straightforward improvements to city programs. ...Iannarone’s proposals give us a peek at what kind of intention and research would go into her leadership decisions.“
