The Portland Business Alliance endorsed New Seasons co-founder Eileen Brady in her 2012 Portland mayoral run.
The Portland Business Alliance's endorsement is guided by its board of directors, a who's who of connected business interests. In many years, a PBA endorsement hasn't been overwhelmingly significant in a city famous for keeping it weird.
But this year, given lingering unemployment, securing support from business leaders could carry sway in the May 2012 primary. Not to mention financial support from some of the city's wealthiest individuals or corporations.
