Re-Envision Eugene:   Alternative Vision
My Vision for Eugene “A Better Vision”
By Scott Rohter, April 2012

My vision for Eugene is a vision of:

A City that honors the 4th and 5th Amendments to the United States Constitution, and respects private property rights.

A City that promises to be a good neighbor to both the incorporated communities within it, and to the un-incorporated communities that surround it.

A City that will try not to impose itself or its arguably unpopular progressive agenda upon its own un-welcoming residents, or on the good people who live and work nearby, who don’t have the right to vote in City elections. Many of these good neighbors are impacted by the results of City elections, for instance when the City of Eugene recently tried to pass a City Income Tax to help fund public schools.

A City that will never again draft unconstitutional city ordinances just because it can, like it did in the 1990s, in order to force non-City residents to hook up to the Eugene Municipal Sewer System.

A City that will not try to build the controversial EmX through parts of the City where the residents and the property owners obviously don’t want it.

A City that respects the will of the people, and enthusiastically supports the valid results of all City elections, whether the Mayor and the Eugene City Council agree with them or not, such as when a ballot measure to build the West Eugene Parkway was passed, but it was never built.

A journalist has no better friend than the truth."
