General Election November 8, 2022
Are you interested in running for Happy Valley City Council? City Council positions for mayor, position one (1) and position three (3) will be on the ballot for the November 8, 2022, General Election. Candidate packets are available on the city’s website as of June 1st.
Elections for mayor and councilor positions are held bi-annually at the General Election in November. The City Council is comprised of a mayor and four (4) councilors. The elections are staggered so there is an overlapping of terms and never a time when all five (5) positions are elected at once.
Council members attend at least two council meetings each month (first and third Tuesday evenings) and Budget Committee meetings. They also attend meetings with local and regional partners. All positions are on a volunteer, unpaid basis, though eligible expenses are reimbursable.
If you are interested in running for office, you must be a qualified elector under state law, have resided within the city limits of the City of Happy Valley for at least one year immediately preceding the date of election, and cannot be employed by the city.
If you have any questions or would like to file for candidacy, please contact the City Recorder at (503) 886-8436 or email [email protected]. Candidate filings must be submitted to the City Recorder no sooner than July 11th and no later than 5:00 PM on August 30, 2022. Additional deadlines and information can be found in the candidate packet.
