PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - Former Portland Mayor Sam Adams has filed paperwork to run for a place on the City Council.
The Portland City Elections Office confirmed Wednesday that Adams filed paperwork to run for Position 4 on the council. That position is currently held by Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, who won the election over incumbent Steve Novick in November 2016.
