Eliza Wins Ward 1 Primary!

Last night, we heard from the voters, and by an overwhelming margin they selected me as the next City Councilor for Ward 1! With 66% of the vote, I’ll be the only candidate on the ballot in November.

I am honored by the trust the community has put in me. I am humbled by the support I received from so many people during the campaign. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Together, we have helped ensure the type of progressive, experienced leadership on City Council that Ward 1 deserves.

Running for office is a lot of work. But the truly important work is yet to come. We need to get more homes into Eugene, fill our budget gap, build our climate resiliency, and reduce homelessness in our community. It isn’t going to be easy, but we can make a difference. I’m ready to get to work.

Thank you all,


I’m running for City Council because I want to help Eugene make real progress in confronting the challenges we are facing as a community. With almost 20 years working in the non-profit and public sectors and a decade of service on Eugene boards and commission – including over six years on the Eugene Budget Committee – I have the experience to tackle Eugene’s toughest problems.

Eugene is confronting a housing shortage, a homelessness crisis, climate change, and budget shortfalls. Eugene is not the only community facing these issues, but we can and should be a leader in implementing innovative solutions. I have spent the past decade working to help make Eugene the best it can be. With your support, I’ll bring my passion and experience into the City Council chambers, and help Eugene make real progress.
