My thanks to Bonny Bettman McCormack and all those who worked so hard gathering signatures for Measure 20-283, a citizen campaign to have expert advice on city spending.
After the city of Eugene stabbed this effort, I doubt we will ever have another citizen initiative in Eugene.
What was the city afraid of? Where will the next gravel pit appear?
