In the April 24, 2018, issue of the Register-Guard, Eugene resident Rosemary Mulligan in a letter:
Voting no on both Eugene city auditor proposals would be a good choice in my opinion. The two choices both seem to have flaws. They sell the idea that the auditor could have prevented the City Hall muddle. Auditors are hired only to make sure the city is spending the money on the earmarked city projects wisely and efficiently. The expense is considerable. A better proposal could be presented at a later date if it is deemed necessary. The money would be better spent on more police protection, after school programs, etc.
