To All COLA LO Members,
The announcement has been published here: Studebaker Run For Mayor. His earlier comments about this years City Budget can be found at: Perceptions Differ.
The COLA Board was notified of his candidacy in advance but could not announce the details until we received approval form the candidate with the formal announcement...
Much of the concern expressed to board members was regarding the issues involved with the current administration and perceptions that an uncontested race would not provide sufficient competition to ensure legitimate incentive for a well defined change in the direction of the city.
The announcement by two candidates that they will both run for Mayor of Lake Oswego alleviates this concern and its rumored that there will be additional announcements by candidates.
Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.
