We need more jobs in Lane County.
Government's role is to adopt policies that will foster, not hinder, job growth. I have more than thirty years' experience creating jobs in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors which is why I am running for re-election to the County Commission.
I thank you for your support!
For 30 years, Pat and his family have lived and worked in Bethel-Danebo where he has dedicated himself to our community. As our representative in the state legislature, city council and school board, Pat has fought for new schools, fire and police stations, a branch library, safer streets, parks, bike paths, shopping and jobs. We continue to need Pat’s strong leadership on the Lane County Board of Commissioners.
Pat has been serving our community for decades. He currently serves on the FOOD for Lane County Downtown Diner Taskforce, and has served on the Oregon Food Bank Board of Directors, Oregon Hunger Relief Task Force, Oregon Commission on Child Care, Home Center Institute Education Advisory Board, SELCO Credit Union Board of Directors, CVALCO Board of Directors, Southern Willamette Private Industry Council, and the Oregon Health Practices Research Northwest.
With your help, I won resoundingly in the North Eugene County Commissioner race: 59% to 30%. This means that there will not be a run-off election and I will take office in January 2013. In the meantime, I look forward to finishing my time on the Eugene City Council.
Debi and I are extremely grateful to everyone who volunteered their time, made a contribution, endorsed my candidacy, and voted for me!
Again, thank you for your support. I look forward to working with my fellow County Commissioners on tackling the tough issues facing Lane County in the coming years.
