Meet Anne

Family McEnerny-Ogle

Anne McEnerny-Ogle was originally elected to Vancouver City Council in November 2013 and took her first oath of office on January 1, 2014. She became the first woman to serve as mayor of Vancouver on January 1, 2018. She began her work to lead efforts in economic development, regional community relations, and transportation.

Mayor Anne taught public school for 30 years, served as chair of the mathematics department and as editor and author for Oregon’s State Math Journal. She was a lecturer and instructor at colleges and universities, consulted for school districts, and co-authored a book about reforming middle school mathematics.

Anne made improving the city she and her family call home a priority. She served for five years on the Vancouver’s Planning Commission and chaired both the Shumway Neighborhood Association Board and the Vancouver Neighborhood Alliance. She also served as board member and in leadership position in numerous non-profit organizations.

Mayor Anne’s current volunteer work takes Vancouver’s influence out into the County and across two states. Listed below, you see her work in transportation, transit, economic development, emergency preparedness, and business development.

Anne continues to volunteer with the Vancouver Police Department’s Neighbors on Watch (NOW) program, the Rotarians, and the Community Military Appreciation Committee. The wife of a Vietnam veteran, Anne is personally grateful to celebrate those who have served and continue to serve. Mayor Anne and her husband, Terry, have one grown son, and have been Vancouver residents since 1980.
