“As Mayor, Ted has always supported unions. He understands that organized working families have been crucial to our economy for decades. We look forward to the work that he will do on our behalf during his second term, and stand with him as we continue to build healthy communities for all.”

-Jeff Anderson, Secretary-Treasurer, UFCW Local 555

“Ted Wheeler is absolutely my choice to continue as the mayor of Portland. We all come to the table with different lived experiences. Leaders who do this work because they feel they can make the city a better place, who believe that all voices must be heard, are leaders who deserve our support. The time, energy and effort that he and I have put into the work that we have done together on the city council is only the beginning of what we can accomplish — and the city of Portland needs him now, more than ever.”

Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty

“Ted is the right candidate for Portland during these tough times. We need leaders like Ted who can focus on the needs of workers and grow our local economy so that everyone has a chance to recover. From managing billions in public investments to breaking ground on important new projects, Ted Wheeler has the experience and values to lead our city.”

Matt Swanson, Political Director, Northwest Carpenters Union
