Those of you on the Portland Copwatch email list may have received this 
past Friday information that they (along with allies) posted a 
questionnaire for the upcoming City Council race (ballots arrive around 
April 27, election May 29). PCW noted: "While our lives are in 
considerable turmoil with the COVID-19 pandemic, there is still an 
election coming up next month."

Last month, Peace and Justice Works' Iraq Affinity Group and Veterans For 
Peace Chapter 72 * sent a questionnaire with four peace-related questions 
to the 54 candidates for four seats which are in the running for the May 
19 primary.

Below are links to the results, broken down by each of the four
positions. Eight candidates provided full responses, two gave brief
comments and two have suspended their campaigns.


--Responses were limited to 150 words.

--Candidates are listed in the order they were approved by the City's
    election team, except for layout purposes.

    Position 1 (current incumbent Amanda Fritz not running for re-election)
