Sam Adams, Mayor of Portland
As the newly elected Mayor of Portland, Sam Adams represents a city that encourages physical activity, especially for transportation. In other words: a walking and bike friendly city, well served by transit, that also addresses issues such as climate change and peak oil. As a Cascadian neighbour, he can explain Portland’s special culture, what they’re planning and what lessons we can learn from what they’re doing, and would do differently.
