Commissioner Hardesty faces November runoff; incumbent Commissioner Ryan expected to keep seat
PORTLAND Ore. (KPTV) – Both City Council incumbents show significant leads among opponents, although Position 3 currently held by Jo Ann Hardesty appears to be heading towards a November runoff.

In a much different race, the Position 3 contest is nearing a November runoff if no candidate can reach 50% of the vote (plus one). Incumbent Jo Ann Hardesty is leading the way with 39.2% of the vote, trailed by challengers Rene Gonzalez with 24.92% and Vadim Mozyrsky with 24.01%.
