I’m Kate Sykes, and today I’m launching our Common Sense, Common Ground campaign for District 5 City Council.
This page is the place to find news about the campaign, statements on current events, opportunities to volunteer, and profiles of the incredible District 5 organizers who are working to make Portland a great place to work, live, and raise a family.
You can check out my bio page to learn more about me, what motivated me to run for office (and why there’s a fish in my logo) but at the end of the day, this campaign isn’t about me. It’s about all of us here in District 5.
Real democracy can only be built on common ground, and finding it starts by speaking from our own experiences and listening to our neighbors. I invite you to share your concerns, ideas, and the volunteer work you’re already doing to strengthen our community by taking this quick survey. I’ll contact you to schedule a call to learn more.
I’ve talked to many of you already and been so inspired by the work you’re doing that I want to share your stories so they can inspire others. None of us is alone in our hopes for a better future.
Let’s build a Portland in common!
