A recent comment after the announcement stated "thankfully we are getting rid of another progressive". A progressive is defined in the Worldbook as a person the believes in progress and the protection of civil liberties. I am confused? What is wrong with being progressive? Isn't that the kind of person we need in this country. A progressive person learns from the past and desires changes that moves the county forward.

I am proud of being progressive and I love change. I am in a business that if you don't change you are gone. We have come so very far but we continue to think that the way it was done in the past was so much better. I don't know if you noticed but the world has changed you can no longer depend on trickle down economics otherwise the rich wouldn't be getting richer and the middle class would be disappearing.

Thank you Charlotte Lehan for stepping up to the challenge and thank you Ann Lininger for your service.. Clackamas County is well served.
