Casey Stroupe, president of S&H Landscape, files for WL City Council
Joins Bob Martin, Mike Selvaggio in race for fifth Council seat
A third candidate has entered the race for West Linn City Council.
Casey Stroupe, who is currently the president and owner of S&H Landscape and Stroupe Family Farm, as well as the co-owner of Clackamas Compost Products, filed his official papers with the city Friday. He joins Bob Martin and Mike Selvaggio among those who have entered the race thus far, with the final deadline approaching at the end of the month.
Martin, Selvaggio and Stroupe are vying to claim the seat vacated by Russ Axelrod when he was sworn in as mayor in June.
After Axelrod was sworn in, the Council decided against appointing an interim City Councilor and opted instead to work as a four-person council until a November election.
A graduate of West Linn High School, Stroupe holds a business degree from the University of Oregon. He has no prior governmental experience; a profile on the S&H website states that Caseys expertise includes yard debris composting, landscape business management, insurance and capital financing."
Stroupe could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.
The final deadline to file for City Council is Aug. 28.
