Savas Kicks Off Campaign for Clackamas County Chair
New leadership will bring accountability and consistency
OREGON CITY, Ore. – Paul Savas officially launched his campaign last week for Clackamas County Chair with a well-attended kickoff event at the Monarch Hotel.
Over the past several months, Mr. Savas has spoken with numerous Clackamas County residents who are frustrated with inconsistent leadership. His decision to run is based on strong support from labor, business and community groups.
“I will strive to bring common sense back to the Clackamas County Commission,” Savas said. “It’s time for real leadership based on cooperation and transparency.”
Mr. Savas and his wife, Suzanne, live in Oak Grove and have two grown children. A Clackamas County citizen for the past 30 years, Savas earned his living as the owner of a small business, Savas Tuning Systems. He has been a dedicated community leader, serving various roles over the years including the Oak Lodge Sanitary District Board, the Oak Lodge Water District and the McLoughlin Area Plan Committee, to name a few.
As Clackamas County Commissioner, Savas has consistently advocated moderation and responsible governance. He was successful in getting Phase 2 of the Sunrise Project and the Interstate 205 project added to the Regional Transportation Plan.
“Our county has great potential,” Savas said, “but this potential cannot be achieved without teamwork and collaboration. As your County Chair, I will focus on creating a strong local economy with quality jobs, safe communities and accountable government.”
Savas’ vision for Clackamas County’s future includes:
- A strong local economy with quality jobs
- Safe communities
- Transparency in government
- Vibrant businesses that are expanding and hiring
- Roads and highways with less congestion
- Flourishing natural resources like pristine rivers, forests and farmland
- Property rights protected
- Veterans and senior citizens live securely
