Hi, just wanted to remind you, since ballots started arriving at people's 
homes yesterday, about our Peace Questionnaire that we published a few 
weeks ago. I've included the old email below with the links. It also 
points to the Copwatch questionnaire on Police Issues.

As a reminder, we are a 501-c-3 educational organization so we can't make 
any recommendations as to the best candidates, all we can do is provide 
the information we received by reaching out to all 54 of them equally and 
what we heard back.

Feel free to share with other portland voters if you think they would be

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.

--Answers were not edited for typographical errors, grammar or

--The seats up for a vote are:
     Mayor (current incumbent Ted Wheeler)
     Position 1 (current incumbent Amanda Fritz not running for re-election)
     Position 2 (partial term to fill seat of the late Nick Fish)
     Position 4 (current incumbent Chloe Eudaly).


    Laid out on 8.5 x 11 sheets; total of 14 pages printed:

    >  Mayor
    >  Position 1
    >  Position 2
    >  Position 4
