Our board was recently advised that some of the endorsements for candidates in LO may include significantly undisclosed conflicts of interest.
Its a shocking revelation that may surprise many residents if verified.
It appears that one local blogger has discovered a significant issue:
In for a Wild Ridediscloses major conflicts of interest in an endorsement of candidate Joe Buck.
COLA has no idea if the details in the bloggers post are true but we refer our readers to the link above. Usually organizations must disclose their conflicts with any endorsement. If this was not done it may be of concern to voters.
Once again we refer our members to the post on their blog for their own evaluation.
This weekend COLA crews began distributing our endorsed candidate flyer. COLA members volunteered to distribute the flyers throughout Lake Oswego as we do every election.
Members were warmly greeted by residents eagerly looking for answers on the candidates. More as the COLA effort proceeds through the election.
Any members who desire to volunteer their time should contact an existing board member for training and assignments. COLA has been enormously successful in the past several elections with a well defined strategy for reaching voters throughout Lake Oswego.
