Doyle earns Mayor's Leadership Award

Two-term mayor lauded for leadership and community involvement skills


Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle received a Mayor’s Leadership Award of Merit during the closing banquet of the Oregon Mayors Association Summer Conference on Saturday in Pendleton.

Established in 1993, the award recognizes valuable contributions mayors throughout Oregon make to their communities each year. In judging the nominees, the selection committee considers whether the nominee has:

• Demonstrated exceptional leadership qualities that have contributed to lasting benefits in his/her city and the community as a whole;

• Shown considerable involvement in community affairs and intergovernmental relations;

• Shown exceptional skill in helping to facilitate productive relationships between the governing body and city employees; and

• Helped other Oregon mayors reach their full potential as community leaders.

Now in his second mayoral term, Doyle was recognized as a "diligent public servant" to the people of Beaverton since 1995 — first on the City Council, then as mayor since 2009. Doyle has worked to increase the profile of the city and addressed regional issues through his work on Metro’s Joint Policy Advisory Committee on Transportation and the Metropolitan Planning Advisory Committee.

The mayor was lauded for his partnership in the region’s proposal to bring Google Fiber high-speed broadband Internet, a multi-jurisdictional effort bringing together Portland, Beaverton and four other regional cities.

“Mayor Doyle’s commitment to this process has helped me understand how lucky his constituents are to have him as their mayor," said Portland Mayor Charlie Hales.

Doyle was called an active voice on education funding at the state level, including Portland Community College’s “Future Connect” program, as well as transportation issues in Washington, D.C.

Nomination materials voiced appreciation for Doyle’s "energy, ingenuity and focus" toward finding solutions that benefit the region.
