I’m a community organizer with experience on political campaigns and in the non-profit sector. Throughout my career, I’ve focused on advancing policy informed by solid relationships with frontline communities and activating extensive networks of dedicated volunteers. I began my career in public service as an intern in Mayor Sam Adams’ office, supporting his transportation and education initiatives.
As someone with deep roots in Portland, I jumped at the chance to support Sam in his mission to help move the city forward. I'm excited to mobilize volunteers to amplify Sam’s message of restoring a sense of energy, compassion and purpose to City Hall.
Portland has been home for over 25 years. After spending time abroad for the last 8 years and returning to Portland - it is clear that we now more than ever need a City Council that works for all of us. Sam is the right candidate to tackle our city’s toughest issues.
Having worked with Sam at the World Resources Institute in Washington DC, Spencer was thrilled to hear Sam was back in Portland to help move the city forward. With a background in writing and digital media he’s excited to share the campaign’s vision and resources with the city he loves.
Born and raised in Uruguay but Portland is home. I specialize in connecting ideas and stories with people through digital campaigns. I’m passionate about education, civic engagement and helping promote progressive causes.
