The hottest local election action this year was not in the City of Portland, but in Clackamas County, where opposing slates of candidates ran for the County Commission and for the Lake Oswego City Council. At the county, anti-Metro candidates John Ludlow and Tootie Smith hold three-point leads over Charlotte Lehan and Jamie Damon, and will likely win their races.
In Lake Oswego anti-Metro candidate Kent Studebaker holds a slight lead in the mayor's race over Greg McPherson, and two of the three anti-Metro candidates (Karen Bowerman and Skip O'Neill) will be elected to the city council, dramatically tilting the council to the right. Look for Lake Oswego to back out of the Willamette Streetcar project completely.
[I'm likely being a little unfair to the victors in describing them as anti-Metro candidates; they aren't opposed to the organization itself, but it's a convenient shorthand.]
