Lueb leads in Tigard mayor race
Tigard City Council President Heidi Lueb was leading the race in a quest to become Tigard's next mayor, according to early election results Tuesday night. Those show Lueb with 52.56% of the vote, followed by Councilor John Goodhouse, who had collected 29.20%. Nick Hess, who most recently ran in the crowded Oregon Republican primary for governor, was trailing at 17.96% .
Goodhouse, who has served on the Tigard City Council since 2014, owns John Goodhouse Independent Insurance Agency. Lueb who currently serves as Tigard City Council president, is head of finance at Thesis, a Portland-based digital agency. Hess is a cybersecurity expert who owns SureTec IT and other small businesses.
Tigard Mayor Jason Snider was not eligible for reelection based on the city's charter, which doesn't allow anyone to serve 12 consecutive years on the City Council, as Snider was first elected to the council in 2012. In April, the council determined he would need at least a two-year break in his service not to be subject to the consecutive-years limit.
