Lake Oswego's best quotes of 2019
Lake Oswegans are a talkative bunch.
And we love that. As community journalists, we rely on residents to tell us about what's going on — and what they think about it.
Every once in a while, someone says something that REALLY sticks out. We might underline it in our notebooks, or use it as a "pull quote" within the published story.
With 2020 already off and running, here are just a few of those special quotes we loved from 2019:
