PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Salem voters appeared to give Mayor Chuck Bennett a third term leading Oregon’s capital city in the primary election on Tuesday.
By 11:53 a.m. Wednesday, combined results from Marion and Polk counties showed Bennett was leading 62.12% to opponent Brooke Jackson’s 37.34%.
Bennett told KOIN 6 News he’s proud of the revitalization of the downtown area and hopes it returns after the pandemic. He’s also proud of the programs in place for the homeless.
KOIN 6 News tried multiple times to reach Jackson but did not receive a reply.
