Portland Clean Energy Fund doubles signatures needed for November ballot


The Portland Clean Energy Fund campaign called supporters to the City Hall courtyard onJuly 5 to announce its submission of 60,000 initiative petition signatures, which should be enough to easily qualify the measure for the November ballot.

Campaign organizer and Verde Executive Director Tony DeFalco said supporters are going to celebrate, then get right back to campaigning.

“November is going to come fast, but we are going to focus on all the things that go into a successful campaign,” DeFalco said.

The initiative aims to fund clean energy, clean job growth and clean housing for underserved Portland communities.
