PPB Commander Faces Possible Fine For Criticizing DA During Public Meeting

(Portland, OR) -- A Portland Police Bureau commander who encouraged residents to vote against District Attorney Mike Schmidt during a neighborhood meeting could face a fine. Oregon Secretary of State Shemia Fagan issued a notice of a proposed civil fine last week against Police Commander Erica Hurley. The notice says Hurley violated state election laws by criticizing Schmidt to the public during her work hours. Public employees in Oregon are banned from supporting or opposing candidates or office-holders while on the job. Hurley encouraged residents to vote against Schmidt while speaking at a meeting with the Lents Neighborhood Livability Association in January.
