Portland Mayor Tom Potter Celebrated Khmer New Year

Photographer Charles King took this picture during the Khmer New Year at Portland State University. The event was sponsored by the Cambodian Dance Troupe of Oregon and the PSU Cambodian Student Association on April 12, 2008.

From left to right: Mayor Tom Potter, Mayor Potter's wife Karin Hansen, my wife Lisa Ung and me.

Notice, Mayor Potter, Lisa and I are fellow alumni of Cleveland High School -- Philip H. Knight (Founder of Nike) and Sho Dozono (Owner of Azumano Travel) also graduated from Cleveland High School. Cleveland rocks!

Although Mayor Tom Potter did not get my vote (which I now regret), he is my all time favorite mayor. Mayor Bud Clark exposed himself to arts. I believe Mayor Potter exposed himself and the City Hall to all people. It is my hope that our future mayors continue to expose themselves and the City Hall to all people.
