On Monday night, Back Fence PDX, which hosts live storytelling, celebrated its 5.5 year anniversary with a show at the Gerding Theater.

Among those to take the stage was former State Representative and 2012 Portland mayoral candidate Jefferson Smith (D-Portland).

The theme of the evening was "Great Expectations" and Smith used the forum to talk about his tumultuous mayoral campaign, with particular focus on a 1993 incident in which he punched a woman at a college party in Eugene.

"I went from the guy voted most likely to become president at Harvard Law School to the guy most likely to visit a dog park at 2 pm on a Tuesday," Smith told the audience.

A local blogger named Melanie Coffee attended the show and wrote a recap of Smith's performance.
