I have known Sid for more than 20 years and understand his passion for public safety funding. We have both lived in Springfield and had kids in the the Springfield Public schools, plus my family were customers at his dry cleaners. Sid is a champion for public safety, both at the city and county levels. Under his leadership we have seen jail and public safety levies pass in both Springfield and the County. I strongly support Sid Leiken for re-election to the Lane County Board of Commissioners.
