The October 2021 edition of “Portland Rising,” the monthly news, interview, arts, and entertainment show from the Portland Phoenix, puts the candidates for Portland City Council front and center as Election Day approaches. Editor Marian McCue leads the discussion with questions about key issues facing the city, including homelessness and Portland’s plan for a large homeless services center on Riverside Street, the ballot question opposing that plan, the roles and responsibilities of Portland’s elected mayor and professional city manager, housing affordability, the city’s response to COVID-19, the nature of political discourse in Portland, and more.
