MIKE CLARK: COMMUNITY COMMITMENT
"It's an honor to serve my neighbors and represent them on the council and I hope to continue that service. I feel like I have been an effective voice for a reasoned approach to solving problems. I am committed to protecting our quality of life and to building a safer, healthier community."
MIKE CLARK: SERIOUS SOLUTIONS
Public Safety "We need more police officers. While most categories of crime are seeing decreases in cities across Oregon, property crimes and violent crimes are increasing in Eugene. Public safety should be job one for local governments. That's why I've worked so hard on this and will continue to."
Jobs and the Economy "I serve with the Mayor on a joint elected officials task force on regional economic development. We're working on ways to help increase both the number of local jobs and the median income that those jobs offer. Nurturing local companies to help them grow has never been more important."
Livability "Many of us live here because we love the quality of life. To enhance that, we must move more quickly to develop the parkland the city has purchased in the northern part of our community. We also need to do a better job revitalizing downtown."
