Commissioner Paul Savas to run for county chairman in 2016
Clackamas County Commissioner Paul Savas last week announced his likely run for Clackamas County chairman in 2016.
He is assembling his campaign for the position currently held by John Ludlow and expects to make his official announcement this September.
Savas believes the county desperately needs new leadership that will better serve the needs of its citizens. He is encouraged by the strong, countywide support he is receiving from citizens frustrated with the current leadership dynamics.
Clackamas County needs real leadership that builds positive relationships through collaboration and teamwork, Savas said.
Savas said he is currently leading efforts to restore transparency to county government. As your county chair, I will emphasize a shared vision that builds on the aspirations of our communities, Savas said. I will continue my efforts to find and eliminate wasteful spending while supporting Clackamas Countys most important services, like public safety and transportation.
Savas has been an active Clackamas County citizen for 18 years. He has owned a small business, Savas Tuning Systems Inc., in Oak Grove since 1985. He and his wife, Suzanne, live in Oak Grove and have two children.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
