“Our municipal leaders are a critical part of the legislative process, and I would like to extend a thank you the League of Oregon Cities for helping coordinate the day’s activities,” said Rep. Smith “I would also to thank each of the mayors, city managers, and city councilors from District 57 who made the journey down, it is always a blessing to meet with friends.”
