Get Involved: Lane Transit District
Seeking Candidates for Board of Directors
I hope this note finds you well. And I hope you’re staying cool this summer. I try not to send out too many e-mails, but a short notice opportunity has arisen.
Lane Transit District (LTD) is seeking Lane County candidates — by Friday, July 15 — to fill 3 positions on the LTD Board of Directors expiring at the end of this year:
Subdistrict 3 (currently represented by Don Nordin) includes southeast Eugene, Creswell, Cottage Grove, and Lowell.
Subdistrict 4 (currently represented by Emily Secord) includes the River Road neighborhood, Santa Clara east of River Road, the Ferry Street neighborhood generally west of Coburg Road, and the City of Coburg and surrounding areas.
Subdistrict 6 (currently represented by Caitlin Vargas) includes the Bethel/Danebo neighborhood, Santa Clara west of River Road, and Junction City and surrounding areas.
I stand with transportation leaders at Better Eugene Springfield Transportation as BEST urges the Governor to appoint community leaders with oversight experience; persons who are committed to serving the public interest.

I want to express my deep appreciation to the Refugee and Immigrant Services Program (RISP); interpreters; Dr. Adriana Reppel, staff, and management of Gentle Dental; and the inspiring team at the Refugee Resettlement Coalition (RRC) of Lane County for their collaborative work to deliver urgent dental/oral health services to Afghan refugees. Together, they delivered a full-day clinic of critical dental cleanings and patient needs for Afghan refugees. But significant needs remain: saving natural teeth, replacing extracted teeth, and ensuring oral healthcare for asylum seekers who are not currently covered by the Oregon Health Plan (OHP).
If you can chip in, please contact RRC Dental Liaison Linda Lovick of the Integrated Health Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here: Online Donation | RISP Dental Needs (ddock.gives). Thank you.
