As elections aqpproach in May, I write to endorse Kyle Blain for east lane County commissioner. Blain is a native Oregonian who understands the importance of hard work on behalf of local residents. Blain, like so many locals, was outraged when the incumbent dragged her feet to help upriver residents get building permits after the disastrous Holiday Farm Fire.
Blain has experience as a public servant as a member of the Coburg City Council. He has been honored to serve local residents. Blain worked hard on behalf of Coburg businesses to prevent closures during the pandemic.
Blain believes the top two issues for Lane County are public safety and housing. He understands the importance of addressing crime issues in the county and the need for law enforcement funding. Blain wants to speed up the home permit process to increase available housing.
It is time for new leaders in Lane County. Please support Kyle Blain for east Lane County commissioner for real solutions for local residents.
