Is Clackamas County in Full Revolt?

To all COLA LO Members,

This week a column in the Oregonian posted that Clackamas County is in full revolt against the edicts being forced upon them by elected officials and METRO.   

It seems that Lake Oswego is part of a much larger effort todirect our elected officials focus and their decisions toward good governance.   

Much of the effort has been centered on light rail and mass transit projects but also on fee/tax increases without a vote.   

The article can be found at:  Grass-roots Rebellion?.

While residents in Lake Oswego have been deeply frustrated by the current administration, it seems other cities have encountered similar problems.  

The article provides for some interesting reading and quotes LO City Councilor Mary Olson who is stepping out of her Council role to sponsor a petition drive against light rail without a county wide vote.

The results of the petition drive can be found in the Oregonian today at the following:  Set for September.

Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.
