Mayor's Corner

Mayor Jerry

Greetings all! Welcome to February! The month of love, affection, kindness and such.
This is all because of the Feast of Saint Valentine that was established by Pope Gelasius I in AD 496, celebrated on February 14th in honor of Valentine of Rome who died on the same date on AD 269 and became a martyred saint. So the date has significance, but it was in the 14th Century when it became associated with romantic love.
Let the mushiness begin ! Maybe a nice walk in the Talking Waters Gardens in Albany or Peavy Arboretum in Corvallis.
That said, February brings more expected HWY 99 progress, cold and rain. Please make sure to watch out for workers.
It is exciting to see the geese, swans and ducks in the fields (sorry farmers) and in the sky.  Photographers are occasionally along the roadway so please watch out the them as well.
That is all for this month but I will leave you with this. Seek out ways to help others and spread kindness when you are able.
As always, I remain your Mayor. If you need or want to contact me you can email me at
