I won my election by a huge margin, but…by Pat Farr

I won my election by a huge margin last night but this isn’t a time for celebration

Life for most of us will never be the same, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be good

Look around.  We are in disarray.
People are broke…
People are scared…
People are worried about the future.

But our sleeves are already rolled up and we already have plans in place
We need to get people back to work.
We need to get customers back in stores and restaurants.
We need to get our students back in schools and colleges.
And we need to give people confidence that they can be safe.

We have issued guidelines to keep people healthy,
There’s merchandise on the shelf ready to sell and buy,
There’s food in the kitchen ready to serve and eat.

If we follow the guidelines we have issued, we will prevent a new wave of virus and we can all shop and eat and travel with confidence…

At  the same time we will continue to give homeless people more safe places to sleep and make sure renters aren’t kicked out of their homes…
And  we can get our kids back in schools and colleges.

Life for most will never be the same, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be good.  Together we can do it.  Lane County can do it…
