Eugene-Area Government Administrator Job Performance


Here are some interesting polling data though they are from back in the summer.

They provide a key insight into how voters perceive various categories of government administrators. In particular, these questions concern how the County Administrator, the City Manager, and the Police Chief are perceived as individual actors in the community. Eugene Police Chief Pete Kerns is rated best. Jon Ruiz is rated reasonably well for a city manager. Steve Mokrohisky is comparatively unknown. These results are exactly the opposite of their relative scope of work: the county is larger than the city which, in turn, is larger than its police department.

Obviously, things might have changed between then and now, but the snapshot is still interesting.

QUESTION: How would you rate the job _________ is doing: excellent, good, fair, poor?
1. Eugene City Manager John Ruiz
2. Eugene Police Chief Pete Kerns
3. Lane County Administrator Steve Mokrohisky

METHODOLOGY: Live telephone interviews of 200 City of Eugene likely 2016 primary election voters were conducted the nights of July 20 and 21, 2015. The margin of error at the sample median is 7%. Totals may not add up to 100% due to rounding.

N.B. This only includes unelected administrative officials responsible for a local government covering Eugene. Gino Grimaldi, Springfield City Manager, is obviously not eligible. We hope to cover Mr. Grimaldi at some later date.
