Steve's Record

In his short tenure, which began November 23, 2021, Mayor Hogan has already achieved major successes in public safety, protecting our natural resources, enhancing public facilities, and sustainable development. His business and government experience (including over 40 years of business management and 16 years on City Council) prepared him to hit the ground running. 

Keeping Camas a Safe, Livable, Beautiful City

As Mayor Hogan moved forward on long-term planning for our beautiful city, Camas was ranked among top U.S. cities for key factors such as safety and livability.

  • Initiated the Downtown Camas Subarea Plan to develop a template for how our downtown will remain the heart of Camas for the next 50 years. Learn more here.

Making Camas Thrive


Mayor Hogan insists on an inclusive and open planning process. He believes in transparency and public involvement in decisions that impact residents and shape our city's direction. Some examples:

  • Downtown Camas Subarea Plan. Learn more here

At every step, Mayor Hogan seeks sustainability and a long-term perspective. This helps ensure that steps taken today will set Camas up for long-term success

Just as important as planning is implementation. With experienced leadership, plans are being implemented for our community, including the North Shore Subarea Plan and Lake Management Plan.


Camas's careful planning, balanced growth, and award-winning fiscal responsibility have been widely recognized during Mayor Hogan's term.

  • Camas ranked #1 for rising home values in the Portland-Vancouver area, reflecting continued strong market demand.
  • AAA GO bond rating awarded by Standard & Poor's, reflecting our strong economy and management. This improved rating also saves taxpayer money by reducing borrowing costs.
  • GFOA Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for clarity and transparency for the city's $100 million budget.
  • First city in Clark County to implement police body cameras – with the support of the leadership of the police department. The City's responsible budgetary support for this program, and a one-time revenue from Washington State, is helping to further build community trust and transparency – one of Mayor Hogan's key objectives.  


Mayor Hogan has leveraged his management skills to set a new standard for staff, resulting in improved service for our community. He has also filled key positions to keep our city running efficiently. 

  • Established a new work culture prioritizing teamwork, service, and agility.
  • Empowers staff to reach higher standards and has rewarded initiative.
