Running for County Commissioner

Teressa Raiford kicks off election campaign

Raidford, a civil rights activist and north Portland business woman who ran for the Portland City Council two years ago, announced her candidacy for county commissioner on Wednesday, Jan. 15, Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.
