I have watched Ken Humberston working long and hard in his 4 years on the County Commission. I am thankful for his practical approach, willingness to listen to all sides of an issue, and ability to craft reasonable compromises where needed. He consistently moves the County forward without needing to call attention to himself, and has proven to be a straight forward, honest advocate for the people of Clackamas County. He has been central to getting Clackamas County back on track during his past 4 years on the County Commission.He has worked collaboratively to resolve unnecessary disputes and litigation, while looking out for the best interests of all of the County. He has helped significantly in building the credibility of the County with local and regional government bodies. Ken’s practical perspective and “let’s figure this out” approach is just what we need for the next 4 years. We need Ken to continue his work on the County Commission. / Tim Knapp, Mayor of Wilsonville
Ken Humberston is an innovative and creative county commissioner. He actively works on tough issues and seeks to gather information to solve problems. He takes the time to understand all sides, gather background and factual data and work together with all parties to seek solutions. He has been a strong supporter of safety and environmental issues along the Willamette River facing Clackamas County residents. He attended a day long work session at Oregon State University, gathering data from wave energy scientists to better understand recreational issues on the river that are damaging property and threatening sensitive environmental habitat. Ken is the kind of commissioner we need to fight for protection of the Willamette River in Clackamas County. We strongly endorse him.

As a citizen activist I’ve been involved in Clackamas County affairs for many years. I’ve had personal contact with every Clackamas County Commissioner for nearly 3 decades.
I was chief petitioner for the formation of The Stafford Hamlet (2006)
Commissioner Humberston’s, unflinching support and advocacy for this rural communities vision and values has been greatly appreciated by myself and my community. Ken has demonstrated time and time again that he is truly dedicated to helping communities develop, define and defend their own identities and visions.
A VOTE for Ken Humberston is a vote for a better Clackamas County!
As Chair of the Rhododendron Community Planning Organization (RCPO) since 2012, I have had numerous dealings with various Boards of County Commissioners who have served Clackamas County. I have witnessed several Board changes over the years, with some good and some not so good.
When Commissioner Ken Humberston was elected to the BCC, he made a commitment to listen to and advocate for rural Clackamas County. The Hoodland area, including Rhododendron, couldn’t be more rural and Commissioner Humberston was true to his word. Since being elected, Commissioner Humberston has attended a majority of the RCPO bimonthly meetings and he has conducted quarterly “Town Hall” type meetings in the Hoodland area to listen to the concerns of the area citizens. The great thing about Commissioner Humberston though is that he not only listens to citizen concerns, he hears them and gets answers. Sometimes the answers are not what we want to hear, but at least he gets answers and with that information changes for the better can be initiated.
But his commitment to support rural areas is not only confined to the Hoodland area.
Commissioner Humberston along with the other current Board of County Commissioners have advocated for and supported a number of rural initiatives throughout the county that have made Clackamas County a better place in which to live, work, and play.
From the celebrated solution to the Stafford issues to the support of several CPO boundary
changes, and numerous policy decisions in between, the current make-up of the BCC is without doubt the most effective Board of County Commissioners Clackamas County has seen in years.
I urge all Clackamas County voters to vote for the re-election of Commissioner Kenneth
Humberston, because a vote for Ken Humberston is a vote for a better Clackamas County.
Steven G. Graeper, Chair
