Crime Prevention Coordinator Mark Wells says:
I would like nominate Mitch for this award for all his amazing work as the lead inspector on the Extremely Distressed Property work. He has been a champion for this work and extremely responsive to Crime Prevention, Portland Police, and the Mayor’s Office. Mitch was and continues to be the main reason for success at one of my most difficult properties located in the 1300 block of N. Buffalo. I was able to sit through a recent code hearing with the community and the police officer involved, and watched first hand the time and dedication Mitch puts into each of the many code hearings he prepares. He efficiently presented a mountain of complicated evidence and documentation and was granted every single one of his and the community’s requests for the property. There is no doubt that this work would not be as effective and successful without Mitch’s professionalism and expertise.
