Mayor Ted Wheeler Statement on Derek Chauvin Trial Verdict

Press Release

Please find a statement below from Mayor Wheeler on the guilty verdict following the Derek Chauvin trial.

"Justice was served today. Derek Chauvin was rightfully declared guilty for the murder of George Floyd. The verdict won’t bring back George Floyd, and it won’t repair the damage, but it is an encouraging waypoint on the long road to justice and equity. That we live in a world where this can be the outcome gives me hope about the future and our ability to make the reforms we need in Portland. My colleagues on the City Council and I are committed to the hard work ahead."
