Mary Volm, an outspoken backer of the effort to recall Mayor Sam Adams, appears to be lining up for a run for city council.
- VOLM: RECALL BACKER, FORMER SPOKESPERSON FOR THE CITY
Just Out editor and publisher Marty Davis is also a member of the so-far 14-strong group. She is yet to return our enquiries.
I called Wurster on his cell phone, asking if Volm is running.
"I don't have that information," he said. "You'll have to get that directly from her."
I asked: What's her number?
"I have to go," he said, hanging up.
Volm was also involved in a high-profile limo rage encounter last year.
The city auditor's office is also yet to return a call asking whether Volm has filed for public campaign financing or as a candidate for any seat. Usually it puts out press releases on the same day.
"Not yet, but likely. Seat 3," writes Volm, answering the question whether she's running, over Facebook.
Also, the above photo is from Facebook—Volm asked that it be attributed.
She's blatantly running. The website maryvolmforportland.com has the following placeholder:
- HOLY DAZZLING ARRAY OF COLORS, BATMAN!
It appears an announcement is pending Wednesday.
Update, December 9, 11:34:
The site is live:
Mary Volm was born here in Portland, Oregon where most Portland 'baby boomers' were born — Wilcox Memorial (Good Sam). As an Oregon native, she chooses Oregon for the same reasons we all do, it define all of us — Oregon, and urbanally, Portland, is the best place in North America to live, work and play.
Urbanally, it define all of us, apparently.
