With less than a month until ballots are counted in the May 20 primary election, both of the leading candidates in the Multnomah County chair's race are now up with their first television ads.

Former City Commissioner Jim Francesconi went first, releasing an ad on April 11 that emphasized his  focus on job creation as a response to increasing poverty in the county.

Now, former County Commissioner Deborah Kafoury has released her first ad, focusing more on introducing herself to voters, and on the safety net the county provides for needy citizens.
