Metro Councilor Rex Burkholder‘s support for sustainable farms and food goes back decades. A founding member of the Alberta Food Co-op, he’s also been a working member of Food Front Co-op for 18 years. In the early 80’s, as a board member of Eliot Energy House, Rex secured PDC funds to start one of the first farmer’s markets to serve north and northeast Portland.
That long-standing commitment to family farms and local food is a good part of why I’ve endorsed him for Metro President.
Another is the event he’s putting on tonight at P:ear. Rex has invited a range of folks from the region’s food world and to discuss the challenges of keeping our food local and fresh and our farmers in business. If you’re as passionate about food and farms as I am, this is our night.
Farm to Market with Rex
Tuesday, April 20th, 7pm

I hope you can join me, and help ensure someone with Rex’s commitment to sustainable food is our next Metro President.
