Clackamas County is now accepting public comments regarding the appointment of a successor to former state Rep. Ann Lininger in House District 38.
Four candidates — Lake Oswego City Councilors Joe Buck and Theresa Kohlhoff, political consultant Andrea Salinas and public relations executive Neil Simon — are in the running to replace Lininger, who was sworn in this week as a Clackamas County Circuit Court judge.
Clackamas County and Multnomah County commissioners will hold a joint session on Wednesday, Sept. 13, to interview candidates and select a replacement. In advance, they are accepting public comments — both electronically and via snail mail — until 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 7. The comments will become part of the official record.
The appointment meeting will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 13 at the Lake Oswego Parks & Recreation Department's Palisades building, 1500 Greentree Road in Lake Oswego.
