Timeline of Ted Wheeler
In July 2018 The Oregonian reported that half of arrests in Portland were of people who were homeless. Wheeler, who oversaw the police department, said he saw this as a problem and that it would influence his budgeting decisions. In September 2018, Portland residents who found Wheeler’s response to the growth of homeless encampments inadequate petitioned his office and other local agencies to take stronger action.
In 2018 Wheeler was overheard saying, “I cannot wait for the next 24 months to be up.” But he has also said he aspires to break the streak of one-term mayors and has not said whether he will run for reelection.
In October 2018, while also Police Commissioner, Wheeler was criticized for allowing Antifa groups to block traffic and harass drivers. In June 2019 he came under fire again for his lack of action during another protest march in Portland involving Antifa, in which journalist Andy Ngo was injured by a group of protesters. The incident was caught on camera, causing US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to tweet: “Where is Mayor @tedwheeler? Where is the national media?! @MrAndyNgo” and “This is unacceptable. I am outraged. This violence from intolerants must stop. Portland leaders must be held to account.”
Wheeler advocates for increased gun control, and supports requiring rigorous background checks for people attempting to buy guns. On March 14, 2018, he released a letter in support of the student walkout against gun violence.

As treasurer, Wheeler relaunched the Oregon College Savings Program, which reached a record $2.3 billion in January 2015. The 529 savings plan allows money saved for college to grow tax-free and gives the donor a deduction on their taxable income. As mayor, Wheeler supported dissolving ACCESS Academy, an alternative program for gifted children not served by their neighborhood school due to disabilities or other challenges that prevented their learning.
