Donoghue and Marshall Not Seeking Re-election  

Portland Press Herald : 

“The council is losing two of its most vocal supporters of affordable housing and public transportation at a time when the city is trying to boost supply of much needed rental housing and as city planners are changing the city’s streets to be less focused on cars and more focused on alternative modes of transportation. Significant proposals championed by the duo, including a proposal to convert High and State streets to two-ways roads and an ordinance to require some developers to include middle-class housing in large development projects, have yet to be decided by the council.”
