Cornelius City Council {_getChooseLabel(this.selections.length)}

Four forms of city government determine the administrative role of any city council. Most Oregon cities with populations over 2,500 have the council/manager or council/administrator form, in which the council hires a chief executive officer to be responsible for the daily supervision of city affairs. Portland has a commission form of government, where the elected commissioners function collectively as the city council and serve as administrators of city departments. Smaller Oregon cities typically have the mayor/council form, in which the legislative and policy-making body is a popularly elected council.An elective city officer shall be a qualified elector under the state constitution and shall have resided in the city during the 12 months immediately before being elected or appointed to the office. In this subsection "city" means area inside the city limits at the time of the election or appointment. In addition, a councilor shall have resided in the ward the councilor represents during the 12 months immediately before being elected or appointed to the office.Please see City Charter.

Improving civic participation & trust will require reconnecting residents with their government & demonstrating that participation in local efforts yields results. It’s important to understand the issues that are important to them & assess how we’re communicating with the public. Through partnerships with local organizations who are already engaging our community in the issues that matter to them, the City is better able to help its citizens & its citizens become more engaged in local politics.

We've seen an increase in the demand for houselessness services in our city, rent assistance programs are running out of funds & the Oregon food bank is currently experiencing food shortage. Many students rely on school for food, medical care & a safe environment and many families faced unforeseen decisions about child care, benefits, and safety. For our city to begin repairing itself, we need to support city staff and make sure that we’re keeping them updated and providing them with proper PPE.
