PORTLAND, Ore. (PORTLAND TRIBUNE) — The biggest debate of the Portland mayor’s race will take place online on Monday evening.

Debates before the City Club of Portland are traditionally the most important because of the organization’s 100-year history of civic involvement. But the COVID-19 crisis has forced the organization to cancel all live events and only carry them in virtual spaces, including its YouTube channel, KGW-TV, Facebook and Twitter.

Club members can still submit questions during the debates, however.

The mayoral debate is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. on March 30. It will be held at Roosevelt High School. Announced to appear are Mayor Ted Wheeler and challengers Sarah Iannarone, Ozzie Gonzalez and Teressa Raiford.

The City Council Position 4 debate is scheduled for 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. on April 8. The debate for Position 2 is scheduled from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. on April 17. The debate for Position 1 is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. on April 28.

The organization’s YouTube channel can be found here.
