For the record, Multnomah County Chairman Ted Wheeler filed today
[PDF] for re-election to another four-year term. In terms of least surprising news
, this ranks somewhere between the sun rising and the sun setting each day.
But we note this to record the other following pieces of news:
1) Wheeler currently has one opponent, retired physicist James Lee
[PDF], who ran
in 2008 for mayor of Portland.
2) Wheeler hasn't exactly raised a boatload of cash so far
, his biggest donations
coming from real-estate developer Melvin Mark and teriyaki-sauce king Junki Yoshida.
3) Wheeler's wife, Katrina, is thrilled
with the news, tweeting "Woohoo."
We now return you to the rest of your day.
