Len Bergstein, a longtime political consultant in Oregon, passes away at age 76.

Longtime political analyst and strategist for Oregon, Len Bergstein passed away on Monday at the age of 76. His untimely demise was probably brought on by a heart attack, according to a close family friend named Sandra McDonough.

Born in New York City, Bergstein relocated to Portland in the 1970s and remained a mainstay in the city’s political scene up until his passing. He worked as a legislative assistant for Governor Bob Straub and for Neil Goldschmidt while Goldschmidt was the mayor of Portland and later the secretary of transportation of the United States.

Bergstein founded Northwest Strategies, a renowned political consulting firm with a focus on corporate customers for more than 40 years. He worked there and advised Vera Katz, the mayor of Portland at the time.

Black Albina neighborhood

She cited the Albina Vision Trust’s efforts to restore and reunify Portland’s historically Black Albina neighborhood as one of his most passionate causes.

This area had been torn apart by the construction of Interstate 5, the city’s use of the eminent domain to destroy Black homes and businesses close to what is now Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, and other heinous anti-Black forces. At the time of his passing, he was actively working to advance the trust’s mission.
