Pish 4 Commish!

Way to go, Joe! 

Well, here is another high school friend of mine who is doing fantastic things for the community.  I went to Churchill High School in Eugene with Joe Pishioneri, and he has always been a great guy.  Come to find out, Joe's stepmother and my Mom are good friends who go to Guatemala each year on medical mission trips.  Joe is now one of my Facebook friends, and is currently a Springfield City Councilor, Ward 6, who is running for Lane County Commissioner, District 2, Springfield.   Joe is Nonpartisan with moderate views, and his priorities are job growth, economic recovery and public safety. 

If you live in Joe's district, I hope that you will vote for him, and help show your support by putting signs in your yard and/or helping his campaign in other ways.  Contact information is provided at the bottom of this post.

"Joe gets things done!"

Joe Pishioneri, 
Springfield City Councilor and 
Candidate for Lane County Commissioner

About Joe in his own words...
 "I need your support now as I seek office of Lane County Commissioner for the Springfield District.  I am not seeking this office as a stepping-stone to higher office.  I am not seeking this office as a professional politician.  I am not seeking this office as a part of my partisan political agenda.

I am seeking this office in order to serve the people of Lane County in challenging times - which is why I am asking you to help me solve some of our biggest problems during these challenging times.  Job growth, economic recovery and public safety are my priorities.  The problems are easy to see, and my solutions are sensible and practical.

Lane County government needs leadership with experience,vision and the commitment necessary to prioritize government services and stabilize the most critical programs.  We need leaders with a strong background in public sector management and current, respectful working relationships with all the various agencies, entities, elected officials, labor organizations and businesses.  My record shows that I have what it takes to do the job.  

Some of my opponents have greater name recognition than I do and have been covered by the media more than I have.  These challenges will not stop me.  I run in this election to serve."

Joe serves his community in some of the following ways:
  • Springfield City Councilor Ward 6
  • Springfield Finance and Judiciary Committe
  • Chair, Springfield Economic Development Agency (Glenwood)
  • Chair, Springfield Economic Development Agency (Downtown)
  • Joe serves on the boards of LCOG, The McKenzie Watershed Council, The Excutive Board of TravelLane County (CVALCO) and is a member of the Springfield Jail Operations Planning Group
  • Lane County Public Safety PAC

Personal Interests:

Joe is a Christian and enjoys spending time with his wife Mary and their two children, including fishing, camping, family BBQ's, travel, golf, hunting and really good coffee with cream and sugar.  His favorite music includes classic rock, John Mayer, The Eagles, Toby Keith, Matchbox Twenty, Jack Johnson and Jimmy Buffett.  (Now that cinches the deal for me, anybody who loves Jimmy Buffett has my vote!)

How can you help Joe?

Your support, now and during the campaign, and later as Joe works for you as your commissioner, will only strengthen Joe's ability to do his job.  Consider making a contribution to his campaign, putting up a yard sign, walking door-to-door, holding a neighborhood coffee, volunteer a couple of hours sometime during the campaign, and use Joe's name for endorsement purposes.  Your support is greatly appreciated and respected.

You can vote for Joe if you live in District 2 in the map above.  District 2 includes everything inside the city limits of Springfield, plus the area of Eugene that is between Coburg Road and I-5, with the north boarder being Chad Drive and the southern boarder being I-105.  You can help support Joe no matter where you live!
