Lake Oswego City Attorney Jason Loos resigns from post
Lake Oswego City Attorney Jason Loos has announced his resignation after a little over a year serving in that role.
Loos told the Review that his daughters' local hockey team folded and so his family has decided to move to Minnesota. He previously worked as the city attorney in Rochester, Minnesota.
Loos said he enjoyed working in Lake Oswego and that his happiness with his work life made the decision harder. His first day on the job came in June 2021.
"It was a really hard decision because I love my job and living out here. The council was great, staff was great. The decision was made completely for my family," he said.
Loos said he will likely work as an in-house counsel in the private sector and that his last day in Lake Oswego will likely come in mid-August.
The city plans to hire an executive firm to handle the recruiting process for Loos's replacement. It will ultimately be up to the Lake Oswego City Council to choose his successor.
During the Tuesday, July 19, meeting, the council will consider establishing standards and procedures for hiring a new attorney.
