The advocate Portland needs.

The advocate Portland needs.

Meet Tony

Recovery advocate, dedicated husband, proud father.

 I’m running for Portland City Council, District 4 because our city needs an expert in recovery and addiction policy, as Portland is facing an unprecedented addiction crisis in our community.

I hope you will take a moment to learn more about me, my supporters and endorsers, and how our community can make progress on the big problems we face. I hope to earn your vote, and I’m so thankful to my endorsers and supporters.

Tony Morse Speaking with Voters

My Vision

I have extensive experience advocating for Oregonians confronting addiction, and I’ve worked tirelessly in the Legislature to improve recovery resources for those who need them most. I know from experience how government does and does not help Portlanders in crisis, and I will bring that knowledge to getting things done in our new form of government.
