  • Treasurer Brian Nava

There are eleven total elected positions at Clackamas County. In addition to the six referenced above, there are three additional commissioner positions, as well as District Attorney and County Sheriff. The swearing-in event is ceremonial in nature, as elected officials are sworn in prior.
