Portland City Commissioner Dan Saltzman came to the Northwest Oregon Labor Council Executive Board July 10 seeking an early endorsement for re-election. The five-term city commissioner says he will seek one last term next year. The primary is in May 2018.
No one has filed to run against Saltzman, but he said he expects challengers. “Which is why I come before you today,” he said.
Saltzman said he has always been receptive to labor’s ideas. “I’ve been a good ally of labor, now I would like to ask for a favor in return — your early endorsement,” he said.
The Executive Board didn’t take any action on the request.
