Clackamas County Election Results are In (with some surprises)
To All COLA LO Members,
Clackamas County Election Results are in and the results provide some surprises with a clear direction overall. The details can be found at the County Clerks election results page County Election Results.
It seems one decision has been made and two seats will have a runoff with distinct candidates in the Fall. this provides county residents with another opportunity to identify the direction of the county and the priorities.
Martha Schrader won a seat with 51.9% of the vote beating Jim Knapp with 30%.
John Ludlow with 28.7% will face incumbent Charlotte Lehan with 26.7% of the vote.
Tootie Smith with 35.1% of the vote will face incumbent Jamie Damon with 36.2% of the vote.
The fall race for the county commissioner's seats will provide some interesting insight into the mindset of Clackamas County voters. The Oregonian provides a perspective on the race in a recent article Clackamas County Divided.
Thanks to all the COLA LO members that participated in the election by submitting their ballots or volunteering for a candidate's campaign.
It appears voter turnout was approximately 35% Please notify all members, contacts, and friends...
