Spencer T Slattery (aka Spenny) is a resident of Portland, Oregon, where he studies political science and law at Portland State University.
After studying sociolinguistics at the Evergreen State College, Spencer took some time to experience the Eastern Seaboard and Europe, eventually settling down in Portland, where he acquired a livelihood in the service industry. It was there, after years of working with people and experiencing microcosms of inequity each day, he was impelled to serve his community beyond the confines of hospitality.
While developing the skills integral to equitable public service, Spencer has been proud to serve in a congressional district office as well as on a primary campaign for city council, and continues to engage daily with progressive politics.
While only two years ago, one might have found Spencer burdened with various chemical dependencies, today he feels privileged to live his life clean and sober, engaging with his community alongside his brilliant husband and loving plott hound.
An empath and aesthete born and bred, in his spare time, Spencer enjoys music, sustainable fashion, literature, the culinary arts, and thinking of what’s next.
