McMullen will bring competency to our elections; Don't miss LO Hunt's Raise the Roof event

McMullen will bring competency to our elections

It's time to ensure trustworthy and punctual election results in Clackamas County by voting for Catherine McMullen for Clackamas County Clerk in November.

Despite 19 years' worth of expensive and embarrassing errors while overseeing our elections, Sherry Hall has been reelected over and over again to the Clackamas County Clerk position. We've probably reelected her so often because the position seems inconsequential, and we voters tend to pick the incumbent when we don't know much about the candidates.

This November, let's all use our vote to improve our election process and avoid unnecessary expense by voting for Catherine McMullen. Ms. McMullen is a certified elections administrator with years of experience. She has the track record of competency and proficiency that we need in Clackamas County.

Vote for Catherine McMullen for Clackamas County Clerk in November to safeguard our crucial voting system and allow our voices to be heard, free of error and wasted tax dollars.

Don't miss LO Hunt's Raise the Roof event

Dear Readers,

Have you ever driven by the historic white building on Iron Mountain and wondered what it is? Now is your chance to come check out and support the Lake Oswego Hunt at the 4th annual Raise the Roof event. The historic facility has provided training programs, a riding academy, equestrian competitions and community events for many generations. My uncle tells stories about riding his horse from his home on Atwater Road (back when that was possible!) to competitions or to watch polo events on the backfield at the Hunt. I also rode there in the 1990s and was always excited to arrive on lesson day to see if I was riding my favorite horse — Topaz. Today, I'm so grateful that this special place is still here for my daughter to have the chance to learn to ride. She just began lessons at the LO Hunt Riding Academy in June and it is a struggle to get her to leave the barn after her lessons — she would stay all night if she could.

Please join us for a fun-filled afternoon on Sept. 18. There will be food, drinks, horse exhibitions (including the exciting champagne relay on horseback), an auction and live music. Even pony rides for the kids!
