    Councilor Dina DiNucciCouncilor Dina DiNucci was elected to a four-year term on Nov. 3, 2020 and sworn into office on Jan. 5, 2021. She brings a broad range of public and social services experience from organizations like Multnomah County, the City of Gresham, Human Solutions, and the Wallace Medical Concern.  She has also been a small business owner and community advocate, and brings her knowledge of project management, community organizing and collaborative leadership to the City Council.

She has served as Neighborhood Restoration Chair for the federal Weed-and-Seed Program in west Gresham and mentored OHSU nursing students in “becoming community competent.”

She then managed community outreach and operations for nonprofits serving the Gresham community, and she is currently employed as a Health Care Investigator for Multnomah County.

    Councilor DiNucci believes the Council can make better decisions through prioritizing communication with residents. “As Gresham’s demographics change, so should the vision on how to cultivate relationships with our residents and incorporate their diverse perspectives. As a City Councilor, I believe we can create lasting solutions by ensuring that residents' voices inform our City policy.”

    Councilor DiNucci’s primary committee assignments include the Community Development and Housing Subcommittee, the Home Forward Board, and the Regional Disaster Preparedness Organization. Additionally, she serves as an alternate for the Urban Forestry Subcommittee, A Home for Everyone, the Watershed Councils, and the Regional Water Providers Consortium.
