Nick Fish Gets A New Challenger


And his name is Walt Nichols, a 51-year-old bookkeeper who's chairman of the Mt. Scott Arleta Neighborhood Association.

Fish (pictured below) now has three challengers for his re-election bid this spring to Portland City Council — Nichols, Jason Barbour and Sylvia Evans.

Nichols (pictured above) says he doesn't plan to seek public financing because he considers it a drain on public coffers. And he says his campaign is based in large part on his frustration over what he terms council unresponsiveness to increasing city fees.

"I sense there's a consensus among people that they want change and they're tired of the status quo," Nichols says. "The city government is not concerned about saving money."
