"Leadership is not magnetic personality, that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not 'making friends and influencing people,' that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person's vision to higher sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations." --Peter F. Drucker
TRUSTWORTHY | HONEST | INTEGRITY
~30 YEARS OF MILITARY AND CIVIL SERVICE COMMITMENT
Achieved by few (only ~19 of 200-plus graduated) Woodard came out of Oregon Military Academy’s Class 36, Monmouth, Oregon, a federally commissioned 2nd Lieutenant, Army. Vetted both mentally and physically as a leader of military men and women, he is a proven leader. The academy’s program requires character, and is designed to find weaknesses in leadership, including trustworthiness, honesty and integrity.
The Right Leadership for Tigard
Tigard can do better to balance the budget and spending inefficiencies. It's time for fiscal viability and performance audits with public performed oversight before asking more of taxpayers.
Fighting since 2011 to get the City on board for performance audits, Woodard’s initiative was recognized June 12, 2018, whereby council agreed unanimously to include performance audits this year. Sadly, it took their 47% tax increase going down in flames to be recognized a necessity.
