Policy expert to discuss government 'love-hate relationship' in Oak Grove
Oak Lodge Governance Project (OLGP) leaders will host Dan Vizzini at noon March 13 for a lecture titled "The Paradox of Our Love-Hate Relationship With Self-Government."
Vizzini's lecture is intended to be the first in a series of regular informational sessions to provide historical context, background and cultural perspective on the current governmental structure of Clackamas County.
It is designed with the residents of Oak Grove and Jennings Lodge in mind, but all are welcome.
If you're interested in attending this informational Zoom meeting, preregister at bit.ly/3dN2VJP. OLGP plans to open the waiting room at 11:45 a.m. and welcome early attendees who would like to meet members of the steering committee and ask questions about OLGP.
Vizzini is a senior fellow at the PSU Center for Public Service and a policy analyst with OHSU Center for Evidence-based Policy. In his 35-year public service career he's specialized in public finance, infrastructure and public works, program development, and community engagement.
Vizzini has lived in Lake Oswego for 35 years and has been a member and frequent chairperson of the Lake Oswego Planning Commission (1999-2009). For five months in 2010, he was appointed to fill a vacancy on the Lake Oswego City Council.
OLGP will announce future sessions — which will range from town halls to zoning code — in this paper, and at facebook.com/Oak-LodgeGovernance-Project-117770633469296.
