I'm Eliza Kashinsky, and I’m running for Eugene City Council, Ward 1.

Eugene can be a leader in creating innovative solutions to the challenges that face us. But many of 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 part of why Eugene, like so many places, is struggling to address racial equity, reduce our climate impact, fix our housing crisis, and find solutions for those who are unhoused. 

It is long past time to go from talking to doing. But for that, we need new leadership at City Council who can get big, bold things done.  My experience on Eugene's Budget Committee, leading non-profit organizations, and working to fix our City's housing regulations means I'm ready to help Eugene move forward.
