On Tuesday, January 20, 2015 at at 7:30pm, come on down if you can, to Harris Hall in the Lane County building, to tell the Eugene City Council if you're for or against the needless, hugely expensive, and destructive UGB expansions planned for Russell Creek near LCC, off Bailey Hill Road in southwest Eugene, and in the farmland by Clear Lake Road and the Eugene airport.
The East Lane District county commissioner’s primary election race in May was won by nine votes. With only 33 percent of registered voters casting ballots, fewer than 17 percent of the district’s voters re-elected Faye Stewart to the seat. More than 16 percent voted for someone else — most of them for Kevin Matthews.
If Stewart had received nine fewer votes, Matthews’ name would also be on the Nov. 4 general election ballot.
