The November 2020 election resulted in changes to the Beaverton City Council,
with new and reelected councilors joining fellow positions. Please extend a warm
welcome and much encouragement as they begin their voter-elected terms. The
mayor and councilors were sworn in in January.
Lacey Beaty, Mayor

She has also volunteered on the city’s Visioning Advisory Committee, is a Beaverton Police Citizens Academy graduate and has served on the Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Beaverton board. She vacated her City Council position to become mayor. The vacated position will be filled at the City Council’s direction.

Mark is a graduate of the Leadership Beaverton program. He was also an active volunteer for the Urban Renewal Plan.
“As I enter my third and final term, I look forward to continuing to serve our community. It has been a pleasure to work with the residents of Beaverton, city staff and other elected officials to help improve our great city.”

“I look forward to working alongside my fellow councilors and Mayor Beaty, our city staff and the upcoming interim city manager, as well as our many community partners. Our residents and businesses are looking to us to look out for them. We have all endured the kaleidoscope that 2020 turned out to be and have our work cut out for us in charting a course to recovery. Hanging tight to our Community Vision Plan, our DEI and Climate Action Plans and continuing to make progress toward our affordable housing goals will all be front of mind in our decision-making. I am thrilled to join the council and am eager to get started!”

“Happy New Year and welcome to 2021, a year of news! 2021 is bringing forth a new city charter, a new position for a city manager, new council members and moreover, fresh, new perspectives. I am looking forward to what this year has in store for all of us and our beautiful city. Thank you for choosing Beaverton as your place to call home!”
