Portland Commissioner Fish’s Passing Triggers Special Election
Commissioner Nick Fish passed away on January 2, creating a vacant council seat.
The Portland City Council chose the May 19 municipal primary election date for a special election to fill the vacancy.
Potential candidates would have to wait until March 10 to file for Fish’s position.
If no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote, the top two vote-getters would face each other in a runoff election on November 3.
