The Bus Project and Know Your City present AMERICA’S NEXT TOP CANDIDATE: an election year showcase that reveals a more interesting side of the local leaders who are competing for your vote.
Join us for an entertaining night full of whacky contests and displays of talent, and sometimes lack of talent. We’ll even (occasionally) discuss relevant stuff, like reducing barriers to voting, institutional racism, and access to a quality education.
We’re also holding a “Straw Poll” at the event – each attendee will get a straw during entry and will choose their preferred candidate by dropping a straw in the respective bucket. The winner of both races will be announced at the end of the event.
This year’s America’s Next Top Candidate features the candidates for Secretary of State Candidates and six candidates running for Mayor of Portland.
