A statement just issued by Mayor Sam Adams:


The Attorney General’s office released the results of its five-month investigation today, clearing me of wrong-doing.

I made mistakes in my personal life that led to this investigation. As a result, the city I love was put through an ordeal. I am gratified the investigation has been completed, and I want to reiterate that I am sorry.

I want to thank Portlanders for their support and understanding. I want to also thank my colleagues, the hardworking employees of the City of Portland, and my focused staff for helping to deliver exceptional results over the past five months.

I will continue to fight to put Portlanders people back to work, address the high-school dropout rate, and strategically plan for Portland’s future.

Thank you for your support.
