Tanner Woody enters West Linn City Council race
Tanner Woody filed candidacy paperwork with the city of West Linn Thursday, Sept. 1, bringing the total number of West Linn City Council candidates to four.
Incumbent Councilor Bill Relyea, newcomers Leo Groner and Woody, and Planning Commissioner Scott Erwin will all vie for two open council positions in November.
Woody, a software engineer for a Tigard-based company specializing in buying and selling trading cards, has lived with his family in West Linn for nearly two years.
Woody said he was running to support the town's economy and efforts toward equality.
As he expects to live here for the foreseeable future, Woody explained he'd like to be involved in the major projects coming to West Linn in the coming years that will shape the city for years to come, like improvements to I-205 and development of the waterfront.
"I'd like to focus on having a good environment for our kids, having the I-205 project go according to plan and having the community brought together a little bit more."
Woody also mentioned building a stronger economy in the Bolton neighborhood and Willamette area.
Woody served as the Bolton Neighborhood Association's representative to the city's tax increment financing committee.
