I'm Eliza Kashinsky, and I’m running for Eugene City Council, Ward 1.
Eugene can be a leader in creating solutions to the challenges that face us. But the systems on which our city is built are not sustainable—they aren’t environmentally sustainable, they aren’t economically sustainable, they aren’t equitable. That’s why Eugene, like so many places, is struggling to reduce our climate impact, fix our housing crisis, solve our homelessness crisis.
We’ve been planning for how to solve these problems for years, and it is long past time to start doing. But to do that, we need new leadership at City Council who can get big things done.
