Mayoral Madness

Let’s pick the next mayor the only sane way: with a bracket.

Grand Final voting has now finished. Portland's Mayoral Madness mayor is Timothy Hutton!


The most exciting thing happening in Portland this week is the NCAA Basketball Tournament’s arrival at the Rose Garden.

The least exciting, this and every other week: the mayor’s race.

We can fix this.

Using the fail-safe American tradition, the March Madness bracket, we can arrive at a better, more enticing candidate to succeed Sam Adams.

Our candidate field of 64 is made of public figures who currently live in Oregon (sorry, Storm Large), who have not held or sought political office (sorry, Max Bauske) and who we would find entertaining if elected to City Hall (sorry, Phil Knight).

We then seeded the contenders in the bracket based on merit, sure, but more on fame, influence and what we see as their likelihood of achieving a foothold in the civic imagination.

And you get to vote!

We’ll ask you to vote for your favorite in each matchup. Every week your choices will help narrow the field-—and then we vote again until we have a new mayor.
