This year’s contest for mayor is both a study in contrasts among candidates, and more prescient than usual. Whoever takes the seat will lead during a time of long-term decision concerning homelessness, law enforcement, a proposed urban renewal district for South Corvallis – and the list could go on. Many believe the future face of downtown could well be decided in the next four years.
City Club of Corvallis has slated a noontime Town Hall for the candidates to outline their visions, and field questions from the audience. Attendance is free, lunches are available for purchase. The date: September 11, 2018.
This year’s candidates are: incumbent Biff Traber, four term City Councilor Roen Hogg, and two grassroots candidates; Riley Doraine, and Dean Codo.
The event is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 11:30 am at the Boys & Girls Club of Corvallis at 1112 NW Circle Blvd. The event will begin at noon, and a lunch from Valley Catering will be available: $10 for members and $15 for nonmembers. To reserve lunch, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, September 7. You can also pay for lunch online with your credit card.
