Our Mayoral Challenge!

Last week we stopped by Willamette Week’s Best of Portland party and filmed two interviews with the two mayoral candidates, Jefferson Smith and Charlie Hales. That’s right – we’re getting involved in politics now. Our enthusiastic tweeter for the night, @krasstastic (AKA Kristi Krass), documented the politically charged evening:

Chatting with Jefferson Smith (and his dog).
Interviewing Charlie Hales as the sun sets.

We figured we better get to know the guy who will soon be running our city. We want to make sure no one’s planning on outlawing pedal powered entertainment programming and we also want to get in line for a mayoral interview (once one of them gets into office). They were both friendly and engaging and made for great guests. We’ll be posting those videos soon.

And after my mayoral evening, I’m game for getting involved in the presidential election too. Mr. Romney? President Obama? Are you guys reading this? No? Does anybody out there know someone who knows someone?
