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.
Candidate for Lane County Commissioner
"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
