Change? We don't believe in it.

In Multnomah County, the open county commission seat will be filled by an African-American woman, but we're not sure if it's going to be Karol Collymore (Jeff Cogen aide) or Loretta Smith (Ron Wyden aide). Gee, which version of the status quo would you like?

Coming in third: Tom Markgraf (Earl Blumenauer aide).

Some days I wonder if there's any hope for Portland.

No, that's Portland Democratic politics (ah, but I repeat myself) -- we like our diversity to be entirely the superficial kind, the same old/same old in a different color wrapper.

Jack, isn't that kind of hard to avoid? Either someone has is a "fresh voice" and has no experience (ie, Jesse Cornett), or they have experience and thus are tainted by it (ie, everyone you listed above).
