Lora boldly stands for principle

  Lora participated in her first candidate forum last night at Troutdale City Hall.  Lora has never run for public office and she was pitted against Troutdale’s best and brightest.   Lora stole the show.  Not only did she bring some fresh perspective to the old boys club, she was the only one who showed any […]
