December 2012    

Dear Friends,


As we head into the new year, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy holiday season and thank you for sharing this past year with me.

Looking back on 2012, I can say with certainty that I'm proud of all Multnomah County has been able to accomplish. We have been able to make a real difference thanks to the talent and dedication of county employees, the collaborative spirit of the Board of County Commissioners, and, of course, the crucial direction and input we receive from residents like you.    

2013 will undoubtedly hold a new set of challenges and triumphs, and I look forward to facing them head-on and sharing them with you along the way. Thanks for continuing to stay connected.

Happy holidays, 

Jeff Cogen    


P.S. You've already done so much, but there's one more thing you can do: Adopt a pet in need of a home this holiday season. Watch this video to learn just how easy and affordable it is to make a Multco pet part of your family.
