Eugene Voters Oppose Lane Redistricting Plan

 

Eugene voters oppose the county’s redistricting plan by a three-to-one margin. However, almost half have no opinion.

This something of a good news/bad news situation for each side.

For the opponents, it’s clear they have won the first round of the public relations war, at least in the City of Eugene. It is likely the recent poor numbers for the County Board are related to and/or fueling this. Please see http://lindholmcompanyblog.com/?p=6885 for the trend up to the end of September.

For the proponents, it’s clear there is no mass  ground swell of opposition,  yet.
