Candidate and Issue Forums October 5 and 12

LOCAL (Lake Oswego Citizens Action League) is hosting 2 candidate forums for the community to hear the five candidates for City Council talk about their positions on topics important to the citizens of Lake Oswego.

LOCAL is a nonpartisan organization formed in 2012 to bring factual information to Lake Oswego citizens.  Their website is LOCitizens.com.

          Welcome to Lake Oswego Citizens Action League.         

Five candidates are running for three open council seats in the November 4 election. LOCAL will be interviewing all the candidates individually as well as sponsoring a candidate forum on Sunday, October 12th. After the candidate forum, we will announce our endorsements based on LOCAL's five values:

  • Prioritizing local needs
  • Ensuring fiscal responsibility
  • Focusing on essential city services
  • Preserving local community character
  • Respecting all citizens and their rights
LOCAL will also be sponsoring two issues forums. This is a great way to learn more about City issues and ask questions of community members who are familiar with particular issues.

Mark your calendars: LOCAL Issues and Candidate Forums:
  • Issues Forum: Sunday, October 5, 3:00 to 5:00 pm, Lakeridge High School Auditorium
  • Candidate Forum: Sunday, October 12th 3:00 to 5:00 pm, Lake Oswego High School Auditorium
