In my 20 years of either working for EWEB or covering the utility as a news reporter, I'd never seen such a large group with as much positive energy attend an EWEB event/meeting. It truly was amazing.  -  Lance Robertson, EWEB Public Affairs Manager

Thanks again for doing such a lovely job facilitating the Police Auditor Ordinance Review Committee meetings.  It was a good, healthy process that seemed to get better as we went along. The focus and tone were largely due to your efforts. The committee was blessed with effective, gracious leadership.  You have a real gift. -  Dawn Reynolds, Deputy Police Auditor

Thanks for thinking through how to present the information and helping us all understand and communicate the options.  I can’t decide which I am most pleased about—the enthusiastic response to the presentation or the intelligent way people thought through and discussed the implications of the different plan options. - Mike Penwell, Facility Management Division, City of Eugene

Your dedication to see something through and do it well is amazing. – Michael Kinnison, Neighborhood Services Director, City of Eugene
