Statement by Mayor Ted Wheeler on MLB to Portland

PRESS RELEASE
MAYOR TED WHEELER
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 17, 2018
Contact: Michael Cox (503) 823-6593
Statement by Mayor Ted Wheeler on MLB to Portland:

“It’s easy to see why Portland would be an attractive option for Major League Baseball. We’re a growing media market with a booming economy and a rich history of local baseball. But any path that leads from today to Opening Day is a long one. My focus continues to be on addressing our city’s immediate challenges - creating more housing, helping those experiencing homelessness, and maintaining a safe livable city. It’s my belief that city resources should be directed to these priorities. We will continue to watch the Portland Diamond Project proposal as it develops.”
