Sam Adams
President Obama
Mayor Adams was not scheduled to attend last night's campaign event. He was at the airport yesterday for the president's arrival, and as Police Commissioner, Mayor Adams took the opportunity of this presidential visit to learn what's asked and expected of the Police Bureau in a visit of this prominence. This being the first presidential visit to the Portland region in both the mayor's and Police Chief Reese's tenure, Mayor Adams then participated in a ride-along with Chief Reese to understand first-hand the challenges of providing security and public safety for the head-of-state's visit.
