Two or More Council Candidates to Announce Tomorrow?

To All COLA LO Members,

The COLA Board has been informed that at least two candidates will announce for council tomorrow. 

That would make our city council race with 3 open positions wide open.   Their are currently Four candidates for council and the addition of two or more candidates would give voters a total of six or more options from which to choose.  

That makes the race for council seats a wide open election.  

Rumors are flying right now as candidates host events to gather the required number of signatures to qualify for the ballot and prepare their voters pamphlet statements.     The Board has been informed of a variety of local gatherings with several new candidates.   

It seems that our local residents are preparing for a wide open battle for the City Council.    That comes as no surprise given the dissatisfaction many residents have expressed at the direction of the current administration with issues like Water rates, Streetcar, Sensitive Lands, and other programs.  

One local blogger has named the Clackamas County wide uprising of disenchanted voters the "clackastani rebellion",  is Lake Oswego on the forefront of this rebellion in 2012?    Only time will tell but the details are getting very interesting.   

In addition to the candidates announcements for the first time it appears that PAC's will play a greater role in the 2012 election.    Two PAC's are vying for influence with one already announcing candidates with their formation announcement.    Who is funding these PAC's and what role will they play? 

Members can look at our previous post on candidate supporters to get the latest details on their funding..

Please notify all members, contacts, and friends of this important information.
