Commissioner Fish's Statement on his Cancer Diagnosis

August 17, 2017

I have some bad news to share with you.

I have been diagnosed with cancer. 

Over the past few months, I experienced weight loss, poor appetite, indigestion, and abdominal pain.

A recent CT scan rang a number of alarm bells. A follow-up laparoscopy this week confirmed our worst fears: adenocarcinoma of the abdomen.

I am in good hands at the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. My doctors have prescribed regular outpatient chemotherapy treatments. The medicine will weaken my immune system, but should not prevent me from continuing to serve on the City Council.

This is the biggest challenge I have ever faced. I intend to fight this disease with every fiber of my body.

I am incredibly grateful to my family for their love and support. Please keep us in your prayers.

Thank you,

Nick

Terminal 1 Sold

August 28, 2017

Today, the Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) finalized the sale of Terminal 1 to Lithia Motors, an Oregon-based Fortune 500 company.

The sale is a triple win: it preserves scarce industrial land, generates good family-wage jobs, and delivers a solid return for ratepayers.

Lithia Motors purchased Terminal 1 for over $11 million. BES used the site during the Big Pipe project, which eliminated most stormwater overflows into the Willamette River and Columbia Slough.

Terminal 1 will continue to be a productive part of Portland’s working waterfront for years to come.
