Donate to the Chris Smith for Metro campaign!

Thank you so much for supporting my campaign! I'm looking forward to representing Cedar Mill, Northwest, North and Northeast Portland on the Metro Council and fighting for climate justice, housing affordability and a fairer economy.


Twenty years ago, doing ballot measure research for City Club, I became thoroughly convinced that big money was distorting our politics in very unhealthy ways. Since then, I’ve supported a variety of campaign finance reforms, including public financing for campaigns.


I don’t have a similar system to rely on while running for Metro, but I do have clear indications of the will of voters. Most of my district is in Portland and Multnomah County (I still love you, Cedar Mill!). The voters of the City and County have separately adopted ballot measures with $500 contribution limits. While the courts have declared these contrary to the Oregon Constitution and unenforceable, I intend to abide by them.


I will not accept a contribution of more than $500 from any entity in my campaign for Metro District 5. And I call on my fellow candidates to join me in respecting the will of the voters by adopting the $500 limit.
