Welcome New Board Members!

Shirley Craddick joined the JCWC Board in January. She represents the upper watershed.

Shirley Craddick is a former Metro Councilor, serving three terms from 2011 through the end of 2022, and representing the east part of the Metro region, including east Portland, Gresham, Fairview, Wood Village, Troutdale, the east part of Happy Valley, and the unincorporated area of Clackamas County in the Metro boundary. She also served two terms on the Gresham City Council from 2005 through 2010. 

After retiring in 2003, Shirley became interested in the city of Gresham’s activities. Her goal and passion were to have the City of Gresham, along with the other cities in the east Metro region, be the most sought-after cities to live and work in the Portland area. The area is a beautiful place to live, and focusing on the environment, stream health, and water quality is very important. With Metro’s support, Shirley is really proud of the improvements that have been made along Johnson Creek during her tenure on the Metro Council.

She is a retired Registered Dietitian and a health researcher at Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Health Research after almost 33 years. During her tenure, she was involved in the design and implementation of multi-site behavioral clinical trials funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Andrew Swanson is the new Jurisdictional representative to the JCWC Board for Clackamas County.

Andrew grew up near Beaverton, Oregon, and graduated from Sunset High School. In 1991, he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from the University of Oregon. Since 1998, he has lived in Clackamas County near Happy Valley with his wife and family. He has worked for Clackamas WES for over 25 years and has continuously advocated for protecting and enhancing the health of the Johnson Creek Watershed during his career with Clackamas WES.
