Watch the Metro President Candidate Interview

Get to know Lynn Peterson, candidate for Metro President. Ms. Peterson’s opponent, Michael Langley, had accepted the LWV of Portland’s invitation to participate in this forum, but did not notify us that he could not attend. Therefore we used the time to interview Ms. Peterson. You can find information about Mr. Langley in the League’s Multnomah County Voters’ Guide, available at all Multnomah County libraries, or online at vote411.org. To hear Lynn Peterson, click below.
