Donoghue Takes Munjoy Hill

Kevin Donoghue, who “redistricted” himself from the West End to the East End this summer so that he could run for the District 1 Portland City Council seat, won that seat by a margin of 1,815 (47.44%) to 1,218 (31.83%) over incumbent City Councilor William R. Gorham. A third candidate, Kirk Goodhue, picked up 793 votes (20.73%).
District 1 includes Munjoy Hill, Bayside, the Old Port and the downtown section of Portland. Gorham is a longtime activist on Munjoy Hill who was elected to the Council in 2003. He previously served as president of the Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization.
