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.
"When I started out this campaign, I set out to bring this city together behind a progressive vision – that community, labor, business, tech, non-profit, environmental and neighborhood leaders could work together to build a vibrant local economy and help get Portland's struggling families back on their feet," Brady said in a statement. "I know that’s doable - I’ve spent a good part of my career working to build grocery stores that would create good jobs, serve as neighborhood centers, support our farmers, fishers and ranchers and reinvest in the local economy. It is truly gratifying to know that the Portland Business Alliance shares this vision."
