City Councilor, Lake Oswego
Lake Oswego is a very special city. This is where we have chosen to work and volunteer, to play and raise our families, to enjoy its culture and retire. Lake Oswego is a nationally-recognized city with a family-friendly environment and now we can continue moving our city forward while making decisions that maintain our community's character.
Family Circle Magazine named Lake Oswego one of the 10 Best Towns for Families: 2012 known for "outstanding schools, affordable housing, plenty of green space and a giving spirit. These communities have it all, making them perfect places to call home." Lake Oswego, a small city of 37,000 population, has evolved its current culture over many years since its founding in 1847. In recent years some proposals would take us a different direction. Thus I will work to help Council be responsive to our citizens in maintaining our family friendly environment and fiscal responsibility.
I write a monthly e-newsletter, Karen's Communiqué, that you may access at the link above, or I will email it with your address sent to Karen@KarenBowerman.com. NOT an official publication, this is rather just another way to share information as well as insights into some actions taken, not taken, or being considered. You may note that it reflects my perspective to respect your input, your wallet and your property rights.
