LOSD LEVY Passes By Wide Margin.

To All COLA LO Members,

The LOSD Levy passed by a huge margin Tuesday showing a broad level of support for the operating levy within Lake Oswego.    Despite initial concerns that the public may not embrace the levy, they did with a strong endorsement of support. 

COLA Board member Dave Berg wrote an article for the review specifically requesting that the community show overwhelming support and why it should.   

The article can be found at A Big "Thank You"

In it Berg established that the support for LOSD is strong because the demographics are so unique in Lake Oswego.  This is due to the exceptionally high level of education within our community.   However the fact that this was an existing levy and did not increase taxes also worked favorably for the measure.    Huge Margin

Overall the community benefits from the strong and wide level of support represented by the success of this vote.   It sends a very concise message that LO supports education and prospective residents will most certainly be aware that this is a core element of our "community character".

Please notify all members, contacts and friends.
