Two ears, one mouth. Listen more than you speak. Tim Laue would repeat this mantra often. Unlike so many politicians who only want to hear themselves speak, lack decorum and make hasty judgments, Laue behaves differently. He’s circumspect, thoughtful, measured and committed. (more)
This challenge requires an informed leader with eyes and heart wide open to the urgency we collectively face. I have known Tim Laue for 19 years and he is that leader.
Tim Laue isn’t running [for East Lane County commissioner] to prove anything; he is stepping up to contribute his very best effort to the task of bringing people together to form effective communities that cherish the environment and each other. (more)

(Moore) I’ve known Tim Laue for almost 20 years. In that time I’ve seen him demonstrate a passion for our area and people. He’s a proven advocate for all residents of Lane County, but particularly for those who would fall through the cracks without a strong voice. Laue can be the voice for those most at-risk in Lane County. He is committed to improving life for all Lane County residents.
His long history of service to this community has already proven his commitment to our area and people. I share his concern that our public services are seriously lacking, and applaud his dedication to improving public safety and the inadequate housing in our county. Laue, as an avid outdoorsman, is dedicated to protecting our environment to ensure future generations can enjoy the beauty of Lane County. Lane County needs Tim Laue as Commissioner. I urge you to support him May 15.
(Casad) The theme of Tim Laue’s campaign for East Lane County Commissioner is “Common Decency, Common Sense, Common Ground, for the Common Good.” Laue has run a hard-fought and fair campaign exemplifying those beliefs. He has attended every forum, responded to the multitude of questionnaires and tirelessly contacted voters by mail, by phone and by foot. (more)
(Gabriel) It was with profound disappointment that I discovered no mention/endorsement of Tim Laue for East Lane Commissioner by the Eugene Weekly (4/26). As a McKenzie River Resident I am frequently frustrated when Eugene area radio stations ignore what happens in our area. Laue is a dedicated, experienced, hard-working and honest candidate who lives upriver and knows our concerns. We need him to represent us. (more)
(Price) There is a more qualified candidate running for East Lane County Commissioner, except you wouldn’t know that if you read the Eugene Weekly’s endorsement (4/26). (more)
Lane County is larger than the states of Delaware and Rhode Island combined, which too often makes it difficult for residents to participate directly in county government.
Tim Laue, a leading candidate for east Lane County commissioner Position 5, has a unique idea that will help rural residents become more engaged. Laue promises to donate his commissioner’s salary to hire coordinators in each of the three watersheds in east Lane County.
These coordinators will be locally available to listen to rural concerns as they arise and work with residents to improve services. This is just another example of Laue’s creative approach to good governance. He has served Lane County for 25 years, helping pass the bond measure for new police and fire training facilities, working to develop a police auditor and civilian review board, and working as a CASA.
I served with Laue on the Eugene Sustainability Commission and I know how hard he works to get things done. That’s why I’m voting for Tim Laue.
I know Tim Laue. Tim Laue is a friend of mine. Tony Corcoran and the Hot Air Society’s snide comments in the guest column (2/22) prompt me to respond.
Tim is an East Lane County Commissioner candidate. Tim loves the people, rivers and forests of East Lane. It is because of this love, and his concern with the threats to the people and environment in our rural communities, that Tim is abandoning retirement to address issues like safety on the highways, potential threats to Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid, and protecting of our natural environment. He truly wants to help. (more)
