In contrast to the partisan divisions that played out in Washington this week, Democrat Marty Wilde and Republican Mark Herbert were cordial during a City Club of Eugene forum  Friday.

Both the Republican and Democratic primary races are contested this year for the Oregon State House District 11 Seat. The City Club hosted all four candidates on April 6th to learn more about their positions. This was a great opportunity to hear about each of the candidates’ unique perspectives and responses to your questions. The Lane County League of Women Voters provided the format and helped selecting the written questions and keeping the time.
