Lake <br />Oswego is not a tourist destination that requires or even justifies the presence of STRs. <br />There is no logical upside to bringing these problems to Lake Oswego, and a very clear and likely downside. <br />Why Council would support this is a mystery ---or would be if I didn't understand how even local politics <br />interacts with corporate pressure and money. <br />Please listen to your citizens: do not approve STRs. <br />Thank you, <br />Todd Schwartz <br />Lakewood <br />Todd Schwartz, prop. <br />Amalgamated Schwartz <br />Voice: 503.654.1044 <br />Cell: 503.312.7484 <br />Web: <br />LU 18-0034 EXHIBIT G-7/PAGE 1 OF 1 <br />
