Mayor Kovash inspires with leadership, respect and trust

In November, vote to re-elect Mayor John Kovash as the mayor of West Linn. I am — and here is why. In the last four years as both a city councilor and mayor, John Kovash has demonstrated a quiet strength in his leadership. He is not a “tell you what you want to hear,” “slap you on your back” kind of politician — but a strategic leader who encourages residents to take responsibility for their city. 

He elevated the importance of citizen committees, neighborhood associations and issue-focused task forces to gather all possible ideas and resources to make our city great. 

West Linn’s aging water system, Highway 43 project, economic development and new police station are just a few examples that show Mayor Kovash’s ability to leverage the power of the people to drive plans and solutions. 

Mayor Kovash is a listener who respects the concerns, needs and opinions of all West Linn residents. During his tenure, the city restored trust in its finances. The new police station bonds were secured at the lowest interest rate in the history of the city.

The residents of West Linn deserve to continue forward with Mayor Kovash at the helm. Vote for John Kovash.
