Happy Birthday Anthony Hooper, Lake Oswego management analyst

May your birthday and Christmas presents not be combined.

I’m the co-founder and executive director of ELGL. I love my job. Other things I love: local government, my family, my dog Michael Jordan, sandwiches, naps, books, and skee-ball.
