Former Mayor Sam Adams lands new job

Posted: Updated:

Former Portland Mayor Sam Adams has a new gig.
He has been named the new executive director of The City Club of Portland.

The City Club's choice followed an extensive three-month search process conducted by a diverse committee of City Club members.

The search attracted more than 80 applicants from across the U.S.

Adams says, "I also look forward to helping City Club engage a broader, more diverse group of voices from across the community as its research, advocacy and programs evolve."

He will begin his position on Jan. 22.

City Club of Portland is a nonprofit, nonpartisan civic affairs organization that promotes civic engagement and active citizenship to build a stronger community.

City Club is open to everyone who wants to interact with other citizens and shape the future of our city and state, providing a neutral forum for many diverse voices.
