“Too close to call”: that was a phrase heard throughout the night at the Democratic watch party in downtown Eugene.

In their run off race, Joshua Skov and Emily Semple, both Democrats, ran neck and neck for Ward 1 Eugene City Council seat. Skov says the closeness of the race reflects how similar they are as candidates.

Skov: “I’m really hoping that Eugene can be much more of a model of unity. You know, we wanna fight for our candidate, fight for our agenda but we really need to remember that we are, at the end of the day, neighbors.”

Each year, PRNDI (Public Radio News Directors Incorporated) honors an individual or organization that has made significant contributions to public radio news.  The award is named in honor of its first recipient: Leo C. Lee, the founder of Western Public Radio, a San Francisco-based public radio training program.

This year's winner is KLCC News Director Tripp Sommer.

KLCC also received 2nd place awards in 3 categories at the PRNDI Conference in Washington D.C.
