Housing officials hit Portland

July 17, 2009

Commissioner Fish addresses the NAHRO "Recovery and Reinvestment - Strengthening Our Communities, Regions, and the Nation" conference in Portland, July 2009.

Housing officials from across the county visited Portland last week for the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) summer conference, "Recovery and Reinvestment - Strengthening Our Communities, Regions, and the Nation."

Commissioner Fish was honored to open the conference with remarks at the Opening Plenary Session Thursday morning, welcoming attendees and sharing his experience as Commissioner-in-Charge of creating a new powerhouse Portland Housing Bureau.

He related his ambitious housing agenda, and closed with a message of hope: "When I look out at the visionary, innovative leaders attending this conference, I know there is a road out of this mess. And where one does not exist, we will build one."
