Elected Representatives

Brooklyn is represented by elected officials at numerous levels: city, county, state, and more. Some of those electeds are “at-large” representatives, such as Portland City Council, who represent the entire jurisdiction. Others are district-based, such as the Oregon State Legislature.

These officials are Brooklyn’s district-based representatives:

Commissioner Sharon MeieranMultnomah County Commission – District 1Web
Director Laura MastersonEast Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District (EMSWCD) – Zone 2Web
Duncan HwangMetro Council – District 6Web
Senator Kathleen TaylorOregon Senate – District 21Web
Representative Mark GambaOregon House – District 41 (south of SE Holgate Blvd, west of the railyard)Web
Representative Rob NosseOregon House – District 42 (all other areas in Brooklyn)Web
Congressman Earl BlumenauerU.S. Congress – District 3Web

Portland City Council is “at large,” meaning the Commissioners are elected from the entire city and not specific districts.

    There is a homeless camp again under the 17th Street underpass. Last time the camp became almost permanent and virtually cut pedestrians off from grocery stores like Peoples and New Seasons. Why isn’t anyone saying anything about this?
