City Club of Eugene: Are You Safe Downtown?

Rachael McDonald

Recorded On: September 7, 2018

Air Date: September 10, 2018

Do you feel safe to walk downtown at night? Have you stopped going to dinner or a movie out of fear? Are you concerned about going to your car after work? Does the perception match the reality of the statistics? How have the business owners been impacted? Has the economic vitality and growth of Eugene been affected?

The City Club of Eugene’s first program of the 2018-2019 programming year addresses the answers to these questions and, more importantly, what plans are being developed to address the situation. Brittany Quick-Warner, CEO of the Eugene Chamber discusses the problem and Chief Skinner will outline his plans for corrective action.


Chief Chris Skinner became Eugene’s police chief on April 30, 2018. Previously Chief Skinner served as Richland, Washington’s, chief of police since 2011 and he has 27 years of police and public safety experience. Chief Skinner earned a master’s degree in business administration from George Fox University and a bachelor’s degree in law enforcement and psychology from Western Oregon University. He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy.

Brittany Quick-Warner became the President and CEO of the Eugene Chamber last year after a period of serving in an interim director capacity and as Director of Business Advocacy for 4 years. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Environmental and Atmospheric Science and a Masters of Public Affairs from University of Missouri. She has served on the Eugene Sustainability Commission, Bring Recycling, Better Eugene-Springfield Transit and the Junior League of Eugene.

First Questioner is Sabrina Parsons, Chief Executive Officer of Palo Alto software
