New man on city council


Glen Boreth was appointed to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Councilor Dennis Wolfe

Glen BorethGlen Boreth returned to Molalla City Council Wednesday evening to fill the seat left vacant by the resignation last month of former councilor, Dennis Wolfe. Boreth served on the council about six years between 2005 and 2011.

“Some of the councilors said that since I have been a city councilor in the past, my learning curve would be shorter, coming in to fill the remainder of a term,” Boreth said. “Also, I did come in as the fourth one in the last election.”

Boreth has also had experience serving on the Molalla Planning Commission and the city budget committee, and been involved in the community. He’s served as a board member on the North Willamette Habitat for Humanity, Molalla Communities that Care, Molalla Weed and Seed, Clackamas County Coordinating Committee and the Economic Advisory Committee of the Molalla Main Street Program.

He attended the University of Hartford three years, where he studied towards a degree in business management. He said he looks forward to serving on the council again and feels honored to have been selected.

“It’s a good council right now,” he said. “It’s a diverse council, and that’s a good thing. I also think they are moving in a good direction, so I am happy to be a part of a diverse group. I look at this appointment as filling in for 17 months, and the council already has a direction, so I will try to contribute positively to the group and to the city.”
