Alliance director throws hat in ring for county commission
Pamela Treece, executive director of the Westside Economic Alliance, is set to announce her candidacy for the Washington County Commission on Wednesday.
Treece will seek to unseat incumbent Greg Malinowski for the District 2 position, which serves a wide swath of urban unincorporated communities in the county's northeast corner and part of Beaverton.
The election is set for 2018. If no one wins a majority in the May 15 primary, the top two candidates advance to the November general election.
The Westside Economic Alliance serves as a business association and also a forum for community issues, much like the City Club of Portland.
Treece was named executive director of the alliance in 2012.
