Jamila Dozier has qualified for the Position 2 race. She is a Portland Housing Bureau program coordinator who founded the New Theory Consulting firm in July 2020. Dozier, who has a Master’s Degree from Lewis & Clark College, also previously served on the Portland Human Rights Commission and is a current member of the Metro Committee on Racial Equity.
