Recall of County Commissioner?

To All COLA LO Members,

Last week paperwork was filed to recall Clackamas County Commissioner Jim Bernard.    Its an interesting element in the ongoing voter discontent within the county.   

Residents are claiming that the Commissioner has conflicts with the property he owns and light rail in one specific city.   

An ethics complaint was filed against the commissioner and is under review Ethics Review.    The commissioner strongly disputes any conflict of interest.  

Details of the filing for the recall initiative can be found at:   Recall Initiative Filed.

If successful this recall could change the direction of the county following the 2012 election.   It makes for an interesting dynamic given the success of recent ballot initiatives in Clackamas County.     We leave it to the voters to determine the merits of this effort. 

Please notify all members, contacts, and friends...
