Mayor Ted Wheeler Announces Bureau Assignments
Approach relies on experience of commissioners to solve challenges together

PORTLAND, OR – Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler today announced bureau assignments. Under Portland’s commission form of government, the mayor has the responsibility of assigning bureaus to commissioners to manage.
