Working hard and providing real results: That’s Springfield’s County Commissioner Joe Berney.
From building affordable family and senior housing, to smart approaches to Lane County decreasing its carbon footprint, to creating hundreds of local jobs and heroically enabling 86 families to purchase their manufactured home park and avoid being kicked to the streets, Berney has done it all and more in just his first term.
As a business owner, he created the nation’s first migrant farmworker training center with seven food processors, and created multi-billion dollar new markets for energy efficiency, renewable energy and storage.
Berney’s range of experience, business background, empathy and compassion make him the commissioner we need, and I thank him for offering himself for service one more time.
