"Sid's commitment to smart growth, urban renewal, and fair housing have been instrumental in making Springfield the place I like to call home." -Lori Palermo
Re-elect Sid Leiken so he can continue being a strong voice and advocate for Springfield.
We are so honored to be endorsed by Kristie Sampson-Kilcullen, a strong supporter of public safety and local advocate for our community.
I have known Sid Leiken for more than 20 years. Sid grew up in Douglas County and his roots run deep in both Lane and Douglas County. We have served together as elected officials in Associated Oregon Counties since I was elected to the Douglas County Board of Commissioners in 2014.
On October 1, 2015 Douglas County residents experienced a horrific tragedy when a lone gunman ended the lives of 9 people and wounded 8 others at Umpqua Community College. Our community was rocked to the very core. Immediately Commissioner Leiken reached out to us in Douglas County. He was there to provide support, comfort, leadership and strength. Sid did this totally behind the scenes. He was not there to attract attention to himself but rather to provide support and care in one of the most difficult times in our community’s history. Sid’s compassion was incredibly important for me personally at such a difficult time.
I share this story with you the citizens of Springfield and Lane County to provide some insight into your commissioner. I proudly support Sid Leiken for the Springfield District 2 Board position and urge you to re-elect him as your commissioner.
-Tim Freeman, Douglas County Commissioner
Thanks to supporter Tauna Nelson for her endorsement and work in our community. Tauna is actively involved in 15th Night, a local non profit that helps our youth stay in school and off the streets.
Watch our TV commercial to learn more about why Sid is a proven leader for Springfield with a steadfast commitment to our community.
