“Lane County needs leaders who have a history of attracting high paying jobs to our area,” said Councilor Farr. “I have more than thirty years’ experience creating jobs in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors. As a County Commissioner I will continue to fight to make Eugene and all of Lane County livable and affordable. I am humbled by the outpouring of encouragement I have received to run for this seat.”

In his previous work as Executive Director of FOOD for Lane County and as an Executive Manager at Jerry’s Home Improvement Center, Farr provided stabilizing leadership during challenging times of growth and change.
