Forrest Soth Day: December 13, 2004

Mayor Drake announced that Council President Soth would be conducting the meeting in honor of his retiring from City Council. He said Coun. Soth had attended over 800 City Council meetings in the twenty four years he served as a City Councilor.

Mayor Drake read the proclamation declaring December 13, 2004, Forrest Soth Day and appointed Forrest C. Soth as the City’s Honorary Historian. He thanked Coun. Soth for the many years of service he gave to the community.

Coun. Soth thanked Mayor Drake. He said his twenty four years on the City Council and four years on the Planning Commission went by very quickly. He said it was a great privilege to have served the City of Beaverton and its citizens on the City Council and other boards. He said one of Beaverton’s greatest resources was the cooperation and well-liked relationships the City had built with Washington County and other agencies in all areas. He thanked all the City staff who contributed to the “customer-oriented” service.


Henry Kane, Beaverton, recognized Coun. Soth as the institutional memory of the City Council. He said Coun. Soth had donated gallons of blood which also made him a lifesaver. He said Coun. Soth had testified at the State of Oregon’s public hearing concerning reopening the Barnes Road on-ramp to west-bound Sunset Highway. He said everyone who drove in that area was a beneficiary of Coun. Soth’s quiet, persuasive, effective and positive testimony.
