Whereas it was previously reported by local TV stations that Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty was allegedly involved in a minor hit-and-run accident in Southeast Portland that another motorist reported to police this week. The Portland Police reported, “The Portland Police Traffic Investigation Unit (TIU) began an investigation and have ruled out Commissioner Hardesty as a suspect in the case. The complainant and the Commissioner’s office have both been notified.”
