Letters for May 8
On a recent sunny Saturday, we opened our doors to share our art with the community.
Thank you to everyone that came to our open house and art sale April 27 and April 28. We enjoyed meeting you and look forward to seeing you again at our next sale.
We appreciate the very informative article written by Ellen Spitaleri, published April 17 in this newspaper. Many of our attendees said they had read the article about our event.

Oregon City resident supports Anna Farmer for School Board
Anna Farmer is the most qualified candidate for the Oregon City School Board.
I have known Anna for 10 years; we attend the same congregation. Anna has always been an active community member. She was instrumental in the formation of Sheltering Our Neighbors, a program which (with county guidance) gives houseless families a place to live until permanent shelter is secured.
Anna is fiscally responsible. She works in the financial field and has shown through her lifestyle that she knows how to manage finances.
Having a discussion with Anna is eye-opening — she is willing to listen carefully to all sides and then make an informed judgment. She is a capable person, and we need her on the Oregon City School Board! She will advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion.
Please give your vote to Anna Farmer. More information is availalble at annafarmer4ocsb.com.
In the May 21 special election, there are important races for our local boards and commissions. One of those is the Clackamas River Water District. I'm supporting Naomi Angier for re-election to Position 2.
Naomi helped restore a functioning board to a district that provides essential water services to the unincorporated area between the cities of Happy Valley and Milwaukie, serving over 50,000 people. Naomi has served as CRW Board president and helped hire a new manager, while working to upgrade pipelines, build new storage, and improve water pressure for homes, businesses and fire protection. Like others, she is concerned about increased system-construction costs and voted for a professional audit of the project, and full transparency.
Naomi Angier is the community leader we need in this important position.
