Local Artist to Run Against Geraghty

West End artist David Marshall has announced that he will run against West End City Councilor Karen Geraghty for the District 2 seat on the Portland City Council.

Marshall, 28, is the owner of Pine Street Studios at 41 Pine Street and is a working artist and community activist, and works as Time Dollar Coordinator and Service Works Supervisor at Portland West. This is his first run for public office.
Marshall said that he will make a fundraising pledge not to accept any contributions from outside the City of Portland, or in excess of $100. He will also challenge Councilor Geraghy to make a similar pledge, and endorse a change in the city's campaign contribution rules to cap all campaign contributions for municipal races at $100.
