Please join the Chamber on April 16th for the opportunity to learn about Multnomah County Chair candidates Jim Francesconi and Deborah Kafoury.

Jim Francesconi & Deborah Kafoury
April 16th | 7:30-9:00am
CherryWood Village
1417 SE 107th Ave | MAP

Jim Francesconi photo

Jim Francesconi is an attorney with the law firm of Haglund & Kelley LLP, and has an extensive background in litigation, personal injury cases and community and public leadership. He is currently running for the Chair position of Multnomah County where he wants to focus on working people, seniors and the poor, and to protect the most vulnerable residents among us.

Francesconi is well known as a champion of all levels of education from K-12 to higher education. He is a co-founder of Schools Uniting Neighborhoods (SUN), which provides before- and after-school programs, and the Portland Workforce Alliance, which partners employers with high schools providing mentorships and work experience. Jim was appointed by the Governor to the Oregon State Board of Higher Education in February 2007, and served as Vice President of the Board from 2009-2011 and Chair of the Academic Strategies Committee.

Jim is founder and president of The Oregon Idea, a non-profit that unites higher education stakeholders to advocate at the legislature to invest in Oregon students.

Francesconi served as a City Commissioner on the Portland City Council for two terms, from 1997 to 2004, managing Portland Parks & Recreation, Portland Department of Transportation, and Fire and Emergency Services.

For 18 years he successfully ran a litigation firm which he founded, during which time he also became a leader in the social justice-based Portland Organizing Project, and founded the Youth Employment Empowerment Coalition, placing hundreds of at-risk gang youth in supervised jobs.

Francesconi received a B.A. in Humanities from Stanford University, and his J.D. from the University of Oregon. He is a member of the Oregon State Bar and the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association.
—————————————————————————
Deborah Kafoury photoDeborah Kafoury is a lifelong Oregonian. She grew up in East Portland and her parents, Gretchen and Stephen, were both teachers in Portland Public Schools who also served in public office.

After graduating from Grant High School, Deborah attended Whitman College, earning a Bachelor of Arts in English. Outside of her studies, she ran the women’s resource center on campus. When she returned to Portland, she became involved in the community, which included working for the Portland Public Schools bond campaign, representing North and Northeast Portland in the Oregon House and serving on the board of Transition Projects, a nonprofit whose mission is to connect homeless individuals to job and life skills so that they can become self-sufficient and stay housed.

After taking several years to focus her time on raising three children, Deborah decided to run for Multnomah County Commissioner. She took office in 2009 during one of the most crippling economic downturns in history. She is especially proud that while the county made progress on tough issues, the board of commissioners and staff worked together to put the county back on solid financial ground.

As commissioner, Deborah was the board representative on the Portland Children’s Levy Allocation Committee, which awards competitive grants to fund early childhood and parent education, after-school and mentoring programs and child abuse prevention efforts. She also served on the county’s Audit Committee and co-chaired the Domestic Violence Fatality Review Committee. She still serves as co-president of the PTA at her children’s public elementary school.

Alert: New IRS Phishing Scam

We have learned of a new phishing scam in which taxpayers receive emails purporting to be from the Taxpayer Advocate Service of the IRS (and bearing the IRS logo).  The email contains a bogus case number and says:

“Your reported 2013 income is flagged for review due to a document processing error.  Your case has been forwarded to the Taxpayer Advocate Service for resolution assistance. To avoid delays processing your 2013 filing contact the Taxpayer Advocate Service for resolution assistance.”

The email contains a link where the recipient can find contact information for the “advocate” assigned to their case that solicits personal information such as the recipient’s legal name and contact information.  There’s also a link to review “your reported income” that again solicits this kind of personal information.

If you get receive such an e-mail, do NOT click on the link.  Instead, forward the email to the IRS’s designated address for such e-mails: phishing@irs.gov.  Taxpayers can find instructions for forwarding the messages on IRS.gov.
