Broussard enters Portland mayoral race as 13th candidate
PORTLAND, Ore. -- There's another Portland mayoral candidate looking to take the seat in this year's election.
Bruce Broussard officially kicked off his campaign Saturday at his restaurant in North Portland. The community activist is the 13th candidate to enter the race for Portland mayor.
Broussard has run for mayor and other offices before, and says he hadn't really planned on running again. He tells KATU the other candidates aren't addressing the issues he sees as important to making Portland the best it can be.
"It's one thing to talk about the problems, but what about the solutions? The people who are running for office, they're supposed to be solution-oriented folks and I didn't hear that," Broussard said.
A main part of Broussard's platform is splitting Portland into districts with specific representatives. He's also hoping to target drugs and crime.
