PIOUS ALI
For Mayor

COLLABORATIVE LEADERSHIP

FOR PORTLAND

Portland is a city with robust community values,

tremendous heart, and unlimited opportunity.

 

But in recent years, housing costs have skyrocketed, wages have stagnated,
and climate change is threatening our very existence.
 
We need a mayor who will lead the people of Portland
and take bold, collaborative action to address these challenges.
 
That is why I am running and why I am asking for
your support on November 7.

shared Economic Development

I will work to develop Portland's workforce by improving public education and supporting trade programs.

Supporting education

I will fully fund Portland’s public education system, which builds equity and prepares young citizens from all backgrounds for participation in American democratic, public, and economic life. 

Expanding Democracy

Government works effectively only when the people it represents are fully engaged in the decision-making process from beginning to end.

Access to quality Housing

Portland needs more affordable housing stock. This much is clear: our proud city will not realize its true potential unless we stabilize housing prices.

Protecting OUR Environment

Portland's greatest wealth is its people and natural resources. Our own well-being depends of the health of our natural environment.

ABOUT pious

A dedicated public servant and an assertive and pragmatic leader with a compassionate, diversified skill set in community organizing, activism, and civic engagement, Pious has spent the better part of his career focused on the Portland community. He exemplified this energy as a Youth and Community Engagement Specialist at the University of Southern Maine’s Muskie School of Public Service's Portland Empowered. Pious's work shines through his creation of meaningful and ongoing dialogue across cultural, ethnic, socioeconomic, and faith-based barriers.
