Mayor Wheeler Takes a Look Back at 2017 in His Year in Review

After facing a series of crises, City Council makes progress on the issues Portlanders care about most

Portland, OR – Mayor Ted Wheeler today released his 2017 year in review, reflecting on the challenges we’ve faced, what we’ve accomplished, and where we resolve to go in the year ahead.

In a letter addressed to his fellow Portlanders, Mayor Wheeler expressed his gratitude for a collegial City Council and expressed optimism about Portland’s future.

“My administration did not plan to spend our first months governing from one crisis to the next, but we took on each crisis as it came, all the while making progress on the issues Portlanders care about most: housing, homelessness, public safety, economic growth, environmental protection, equity, and government transparency and accountability.”
