Lake Oswego's local election is starting to gear up — and the race for mayor and City Council seats are on. Current City Councilors and Theresa Kohlhoff and John LaMotte have already announced their candidacies for mayor and Lake Oswego resident Emma Burke announced last month she was running for a seat on City Council.
There are three seats up for grabs on the council and the three candidates who receive the greatest number of votes will be elected.
The suggested deadline for candidates to submit nomination papers to the city is Aug. 21, and the final deadline is Aug. 25.
Local residents will vote for their mayor and three city councilors Nov. 3 and the elected officials' four-year terms will begin Jan. 1, 2021 and end Dec. 21, 2024.
