Nick Fish, Dan Saltzman Cruise Back Into Portland City Hall

Portland City Commissioners Nick Fish and Dan Saltzman are returning to City Hall.

Unofficial returns show Fish sailing into his third term with 73 percent of the vote. His opponents, Sharon Maxwell and Michael Durrow, had 19 percent and 7 percent, respectively.

Saltzman will serve a fifth term after winning 64 percent of the vote. His strongest challenger, living-wage activist Nicholas Caleb, received 18 percent.

Both Fish and Saltzman have borne heavy criticism in the past year for their management of the city's water and sewer utilities. Fish, in particular, was made a poster boy for unchecked spending, as activists and businesses tried to take away City Council control of the Bull Run Watershed.

But neither faced a challenger with serious financial resources or major endorsements.
