“Duncan is hard-working, visionary, and a true public servant. I’ve watched him work behind the scenes for years to advance affordable housing and transportation justice. Duncan's leadership helped turn an abandoned furniture store on the corner of 82nd Ave into a community center with 48 units of affordable housing on top. In this time, we need leaders who can turn community visions into actual projects on the ground, using all the tools in our local government toolbox. District 6 needs an experienced leader like Duncan to address the critical needs of our region.”

Khanh Pham


"The role of regional decision makers in shaping our future is as important as ever. Duncan has a grounding in community and proven leadership skills that are needed to steward a future that's just, equitable and with opportunities for all"

Vivian Satterfield

Environmental Justice Advocate, Community Leader

"I am proud to endorse Duncan Hwang in his run to be the Metro Councilor for District 6. Duncan and I worked together in a broad coalition to obtain $185 million to bring 82nd Ave up to standard. I look forward to working with him on Metro Council to address the many issues facing our region."

Ashton Simpson

Pedestrian Advocate & Candidate for Metro District 1

"Representation matters. I was grateful to work with Duncan to help secure funding for 82nd Ave and know that leaders coming from community bring an invaluable perspective . As transportation commissioner, we need voices like Duncan at Metro to help the region prepare for the land use and transportation opportunities ahead."

Jo Ann Hardesty

Portland Commissioner

Duncan has been a tireless champion for his community, successfully working to uplift emerging voices by working with local and regional governments for tangible housing and transportation victories in the Jade District and beyond. I am confident Duncan will make an exceptional Metro Councilor and I'm eager to endorse his candidacy.

Jessica Vega Pederson

Multnomah County Commissioner

“This past year I’ve observed Duncan step up to support his community and put together programs for rental assistance, vaccine events, and food security. Our region urgently needs leadership deeply connected to our frontline communities who will uplift their voices and make sure government works for all of us. I’m proud to endorse Duncan for Metro Council.

Carmen Rubio

Portland Commissioner

I've watched Duncan Hwang repeatedly show up to work with multiple government agencies to deliver results to his community. The transformation of 82nd Ave. in the coming years is a project I have long championed and is something I look forward to partnering with him on. He's a thoughtful leader with a fantastic vision for the region, and he will make an excellent Metro Councilor.
