The supporters of the bond measure walked door to door in a North Eugene neighborhood, explaining what the bond measure would do if it was passed. Supporters say they chose to canvas in North Eugene because two of the area’s elementary schools would be rebuilt if the measure passed.
In addition to replacing a few schools, supporters said every school in the 4J district would benefit from the bond measure.
“So this bond measure is something that we really need to do for our schools because some of them, a lot of them, have essential repairs that they need; a lot of them need security upgrades and so many of the schools need new computers and technology,” said Joy Marshall, a 4J parent.
Supporters of the bond measure say they’re confident it will pass because it’s something that would support education in Eugene.
