Last week, WW began posting clips from its endorsement interview with the leading candidates for mayor, State Rep. Jefferson Smith (D-Portland), former City Commissioner Charlie Hales and businesswoman Eileen Brady. 

The first video showed the candidates offering their takes on the proposed Oregon Sustainability Center.

The second had them respond to a tough question on campaign finance.

Today's video concerns a revealing portion of the interview in which we asked the candidates to demonstrate their independence from the city's most influential interest groups, downtown property owners and developers and public employee unions.
