Rob Drake is a Oregon hero for standing up to the cult named NIKE.

Rob Drake, all I can say is good ridens!!. He never even actively was active or responsible in the transition process to our new Mayor when he clearly lost the election!!, now he wants another government job!.(yes it is true), He continues to search for new employment. He is no kind of leader of character that should be in a leadership position at all. His ego is in his way all the time, and it is too bad that he can not respect the voters of our city. He tried to take on the BIG economic engine of Beaverton and our state, NIKE, and our only Oregon grown fortune 500 company, and well it back fired. I would like to say a big thanks to Phil Knight for his activist approach and action, as he provided many jobs and support for our state,and true justice to Rob Drake. Knight is a true leader and one of the strong citizens of our area. I understand from some of his prior customers that Drake did well as a beer and wine salesman,before he was Mayor, perhaps maybe that is a good place for him to return to.(and by the way i am not a nike employee) but a fan of phil knight for his true leadership and actions!

Rob Drake was bad news for Beaverton as far as I'm concerned. Ripping off drivers with the robo-red lights was one. They trying to incorporate Nike and northern Wash cty (without any vote!!) was another. I'm glad Nike caught him red handed when he accidently erased his computer disk and lost key files. Sounds like Tricky Dicky to me.

Yes sir, MR Drake can not find work now due to his baggage that he now must carry! as he did not do any transition with MR Doyle!, what kind of a leader is this?, NOT!. The red light cameras, on his watch yes, the "round fiasco" on his watch, yes, NIKE on his watch, yes, Crashing his computer for a law suit with NIKE, on his watch again!. This man has an ego problem!, and lack of good solid judgement, a real piece of work. Beaverton or our State Government does not need MR Drake's incompetence or services ever again!!

Well Rob is at it again!, working on Betty Bodes campaign for city council. She is the worst member of the council, a real negative and impossible person to work with, just like Rob!!. These two are a pair you do not want to draw to!. Leadership and the good of the City are not their focus, and it is time for both of them to be completely out of government and public service. Working hard to defeat her will be the leaders as well as myself's goal, so let us defeat Betty Bode, it is time to move on from the Rob Drake legacy that he did not leave us!. These two will do nothing but make things miserable and Beaverton a more expensive place to live and much more difficult place to do business, we need pro business minded leadership during these challenging economic times!.

Now Mr Rob Drake has helped Betty Bode get re-elected, and he is in the back drop of her moves. We, as citizens of Beaverton are watching Betty Bode, and the Rob Drakes ties, we will go to letters to the editor and the press and make all facts public, we will watch her actions votes on the City Council. We expect Beaverton to become a business friendly city, and no thanks to the past of Drake's unfriendly woes, and Betty needs to look forward as the landscape of the City Council has changed in the recent years.
Drake is still seeking employment in the government sector, and this could be challenging for a past Mayor that did not transition his position to his rightful successor, or even help with cooperation of the city management transition to his susccessor. shameful?, indeed.

The Gazette Paper Drake lists he has two sons, his campaign registration lists 2 sons and a daughter, there he goes again, the truth comes hard for him.
Watch agriculture industry, he is looking to annex you into the city for higher taxes and he wants Betty Bode to help him if she gets elected,(hope not)

vote for jobs and lower taxes, not drake!!!, let you city council know the truth about Drake!!!

Well now Mr Drakes contract is up for renewal, this month (feb 2013), he is trying to raise the tax base though annexation,(there he goes again), tried and failed with NIKE, but now just some farmers and residences in a small town of Cornelius, he thinks he can be sneaky and get it through.

Watch out, mr drake is after your wallet, hard earned money, he wants more taxes to build a bigger more expensive government in Cornelius. VOTE HIM OUT!!. he has no real value, other than negative values for Cornelius.

Yep i also heard he had a daughter, guess he forgot about her when he talked to the Gazette paper. My how things can be forgotten.(Mr Drake is a real story teller), think that is his true talent.

Our State and city government does not need anymore of Rob Drakes services!!,
