Harmony Quiroz – Chair of TSCC

Appointed: January 1, 2022
Term Ending: December 31, 2024

Experience: Harmony Quiroz is a professional educator with more than 15 years of experience as a teacher, curriculum and assessment developer, and project manager. She began her career as a middle school math and science teacher in New York City in 2004. She holds a Washington State Teaching License in Secondary Science. Harmony is currently a Senior Assessment Specialist with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. She served as the Co-Chair of the Portland Public Schools Community Budget Review Committee from 2016-2019. Harmony is also a member of the Atkinson Elementary Parent Teacher Association.

Reason joined Commission: I strongly believe in the importance of public service – that it is the responsibility of all individuals in a community to engage in government. Joining the TSCC offers the opportunity to connect the needs and interests of taxpayers with the government officials implementing all of the activities in Multnomah County. I want to ensure that governments and agencies are spending money in ways that are reflective of the diverse perspectives in our community.

Dr. Mark Wubbold – Vice-Chair of TSCC

Appointed: January 1, 2016
Term Ending: December 31, 2024

Experience: Mark recently retired as the senior policy analyst in the office of the President at Portland State University. His eclectic portfolio included preparing testimony for legislative policy packets, as well as staffing Presidential initiatives — such as strategic planning and accreditation — with campus-wide implications. Previous to this, he was the special assistant to PSU’s Vice President for Finance and Administration where he worked on fiscal management issues and special projects. One of these, the Financial Futures Task Force, aligned perfectly with the interests of the TCSS, since it led to PSU’s adoption of Performance Based Budgeting.

Reason joined Commission: “TSCC service is consistent with my personal belief that budgets reflect the values of our institutions. How an organization prioritizes the allocation of scarce public resources is a window into its institutional soul. Service on a commission of this type is a wonderful way to better understand and appreciate the relationship between Multnomah County institutions, their values, and the people they serve. For a curious, community-oriented person, TSCC service is an opportunity that is hard to pass up.”
