PORTLAND, ME — The Portland Chamber of Commerce is full of good cheer this morning after successfully winning their bid for the Mayoral seat in Portland last night.
With 75% of Portlanders opting to not vote, Portland Chamber of Commerce CEO Chris Hall said the Chamber scored a hat trick in Tuesday’s election; the Living Wage ordinance, which would have raised the minimum wage to $15/hr, and scenic-view protections ordinance, which would have dampened the ongoing explosion of luxury condo development that is pricing many working people out of Portland, were both defeated.
The icing on the cake being the mayoral re-election win of the Portland Chamber of Commerce.

Looking forwards to another 3 year mayoral term in which business can continue running roughshod over the interests of working people, the Chamber expressed glee.
“I’m very proud of Portland voters – I really am,” the Chamber said. “You’re going to get exactly what you deserve.”
