Message from the Mayor
Happy Holidays! I hope everyone
enjoyed that most American of holidays,
Thank you for electing me to a
second term as your Mayor. I recognize
the responsibility you have given me to
represent your best interests. I would like
to congratulate Marc Woodard on his
re-election and John Goodhouse on his
election to the council for the next four
Thanks to Councilor Buehner
I would also like to thank Gretchen
Buehner for her service to the Council
the last eight years and previous to that as
a member of the Planning Commission,
City Center Advisory Commission and
Tigard Water District board. The city is a
better place from her knowledge in landuse
and water issues.
I look forward to seeing you at Tree
Lighting Festivities set for Friday, Dec. 5,
at 7 p.m. in Liberty Park, across from
McDonald’s on Main Street.
My next “Fireside Chat with
the Mayor” is on Dec. 4, from 6:30
to 8:30 p.m. at Symposium Coffee,
12345 SW Main St.
My December quote of the month
is by Oprah Winfrey, “Be thankful for what
you have; you’ll end up having more. If you
concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never,
ever have enough.”
John L. Cook, Mayor
