Letter to the Editor: Savas is exactly who we want

The Oregonian – April 12th 2014

I was nauseated to read about Clackamas County Chairman John Ludlow’s recent perversion of Commissioner Paul Savas’ record (“Campaign contention,” Editorial, April 8). The people deserve governance that conveys honesty and integrity — neither of which were represented in Ludlow’s vile comments.

Clackamas County politics “It’s just politics” is not an acceptable response to such behavior. We should never excuse misleading attempts to erode someone’s reputable character by someone in pursuit of power.

Paul Savas has earned a reputation for being an …

Paul Savas and for Clackamas commission: Editorial endorsement

The Oregonian – April 10, 2014

It’s difficult not to focus on the theatrics that have accompanied this spring’s Clackamas County Board of Commissioners races. Chair John Ludlow recently gave the back of his hand to incumbents Paul Savas and Jim Bernard, who are seeking re-election. Bernard’s campaign sent out a fund-raising letter that erroneously ties the opposition to the Koch brothers bogey-man (he has since said, “oops”).

And then there’s that billboard, bought on behalf of challengers Karen Bowerman and Stephen Bates, that uses …

Clackamas County commissioners oppose land use ‘grand bargain’

The Oregonian – February 25, 2014

The Clackamas County commissioners oppose an amendment to the land use “grand bargain” that is expected to move quickly through the Oregon Legislature this week.

The commissioners think the amendment to House Bill 4078 favors Washington County at the expense of Clackamas County, and legislators should wait until the 2015 session before making any decisions.

Political reporter Christian Gaston explains the amendment in his story on the amendment:

Rep. Brian Clem, D-Salem, is crafting an amendment to House Bill 4078 that would clear …

Savas takes on inequalities across local park system

Portland Tribune – February 12, 2014

Most children who live in Milwaukie or Happy Valley have their choice of walking to at least two parks, but a couple of the poorer areas of unincorporated North Clackamas County lack neighborhood parks within a half mile.

County officials have long recognized the need for 3-4 acre parks in Jennings Lodge and Southgate especially, two areas with the lowest average incomes in the region, as well as in many other parts of the North Clackamas Parks & Recreation District. However, …
