BIG Changes in City Council Assured? (For both Portland and Lake Oswego)

To All Cola LO Members,

A recent article in the Oregonian illustrates the major changes coming in 2012 for both Lake Oswego and Portland.    Portland Mayor Sam Adams a strong supporter and friend of Jack Hoffman has announced he will not run for reelection due to strong opposition and candidates opposing Portland's policies.    This is especially true after recent announcements by auditors on the city's finances.   

Lake Oswego Mayor Jack Hoffman will loose a strong supporter as the 2012 election nears.    Lake Oswego will elect 3 Councilors and a Mayor in 2012 effectively representing the majority on the Council.    Mayor Hoffman has faced similar opposition due to policies over the past two years including fee/tax increases, sensitive lands, conflicts of interest, lack of consideration for dissenting public opinions, and expenditures on major projects. 

In a recent article he comments on the effects of the changes in Portland:   Jack Hoffman comments on how Portland City council will effect his plans
