“I am proud to endorse Heather Buch for East Lane County Commissioner. I have seen the work that Heather has done delivering real results for the people in Lane County, especially in rural parts of the district, and I know she will continue to have a big impact as a County Commissioner. Heather will work tirelessly to find the common sense solutions we need here in Lane County and improve the lives of all Oregonians.”  

United States Congressman Peter DeFazio, Dean of the Oregon Delegation

“I have had the pleasure of working with Heather Buch in her capacity as a project manager for St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County (SVDP). Heather was tasked with identifying manufactured home parks which could be purchased by SVDP to preserve them as a viable form of affordable housing. I worked with Heather on several of these projects. She successfully negotiated purchase contracts and then arranged all the funding which included a complicated array of government grants and traditional bank financing. Many of these parks required intensive remodeling including replacing homes which were in disrepair. Heather managed all of this work to insure that it was completed on time and

on budget. The finalized product was a clean, safe, well-maintained community that, under SVDP’s ownership and management, would remain affordable for its residents. Heather is a strong leader, a good listener, a collaborative problem solver, and she cares about the poor. She would make a GREAT County Commissioner.” 

Mary Bartlett, Vice President Business Client Advisor, Summit Bank

“Heather wears two hats. With one she is in charge of St. Vinnie's wonderful mobile home park makeover projects. As you may know, they buy very distressed properties, fix the many problems, improve the units already existing there or bring in newer, less distressed units And then they can lease or re-lease these clean, safe places to individuals or families with low incomes. Her second hat is as a small business owner. She is a licensed commercial Realtor and property manager who specializes in affordable housing. Do you know a theme here? It is my opinion that Heather is the most qualified and capable candidate in this race. Besides, we need a competent woman on the current all-male board of county commissioners!” 

Jean Tate, former teacher, small business owner, and First Citizen of Eugene
