North and Northeast Portland is home to dozens of "brownfields," sites that were once used by dry cleaners, mechanics, or other industrial businesses, who at the time found it economical to dispose of hazardous waste by dumping it outside. This has left a legacy of environmental hazards that affect our children's health and our communities' livability. We must clean up these sites, and in the process create jobs and increase our neighborhoods' productive potential.

Lew will see to that we address the environmental challenges that affect Portlanders and Oregonians in addition to taking action to address global challenges like climate change and ecosystem deterioration.
