Mayor can scratch one of the city’s most beloved figures off their list of
Slugger, the mascot and “Director of Fun” for the Portland Sea Dogs, tweeted a picture of a lawn sign that says, “Write In Slugger for Mayor Because Portland Deserves Authentic Leadership”
Slugger says all four of the candidates are “way more qualified” than he is,
the sign itself appears to be taking a shot at the field of candidates, suggesting

I’m Slugger the Sea Dog and I did NOT approve this message. As flattering as it is, the four candidates on the ballot are way more qualified than me to serve as Mayor. Don’t forget to vote November 5th! pic.twitter.com/sfcYK4kyxp
