COLA LO Board Member commended in letters to the editor

cTo All COLA LO Members,

COLA LO Board Member Dave Berg was commended for his 3/10 article on "how three R's impact our lives" in a letter to the editor this week in the LO review. The citizen commended him for the details in his article. The text of the letter is below.

Dave Berg is particularly concerned about the impact of expenditures, fees, and taxes on our maturing citizens and the direction of expenditures on large projects which may have marginal benefits to our city. He believes strongly that core services should be adjusted to reflect the needs of a maturing community in Lake Oswego. 

Berg commended for his column

To the Editor:
I was born in Oswego almost 80 years ago, so as an elder citizen, “change” may be weighed more heavily.
Especially when I consider the cost of living in this community and how hard it’s been for younger families to move here. I commend Dave Berg’s citizen’s view (March 10 in the Lake Oswego Review titled) “How 3 R’s impact our lives.”
It was a reminder of how invested Judie Hammerstad was in the WEB decision as mayor. It made me question even more the pro arguments for having a streetcar. I used to work in Portland and the bus ride to and from was always a pleasant part of my day .
I also like Dave Berg’s support of our new city council and thank them, too, for their concern of being responsible to the citizens.
