Meet Mindy

Mindy Schlossberg on a Kayak

If someone had told me 5 years ago that I would someday run for office, I never would have believed it.  I've come to realize that we need more civic-minded leaders who can build relationships and solve problems.

I've lived in Eugene for almost 17 years and raised 3 children here with my husband, Marc.  I love spending time with family, especially outdoors, and I'm passionate about making this world a better place.

I have a Master's degree in environmental studies and worked professionally with several nonprofit environmental organizations, including as a Peace Corps volunteer in Fiji.  After having kids, I decided I wanted a change of pace, and I went back to school to become a speech-language pathologist.  Since 2010, I've worked with Early Childhood CARES and love providing speech therapy to preschool-aged children in Lane County.  

While this is my first run for elected office, it is not my first experience being on a board.  I'm currently the president of the board of Temple Beth Israel, helping guide the organization strategically, fiscally, and in a way that meets the diverse needs of the community. 

When I'm not working or volunteering, you can usually find me reading, solving crossword puzzles, and taking walks with friends and family.

I hope I can have your vote on the May 15th, 2018 ballot!

My Priorities

We are fortunate to have a publicly owned utility here in Eugene and I want to ensure that it continues to work for the public good. I have four priority areas, in addition to making sure EWEB continues to operate in a fiscally responsible way.

Environment

EWEB is a recognized environmental leader, providing some of the cleanest water to customers in the country, protecting the watershed, and providing electricity via green sources of power.  I want to help EWEB continue to stay at the forefront of these and other types of climate friendly environmental practices.

Families

Many families live financially close to the edge, especially those who rent, and high utility bills can threaten housing security.  I will find ways to work with landlords to create incentives to invest in energy conservation measures.  Those efforts will lead to lower utility bills for working families, and will also be smart investments for the planet.

Eugene

We need to find ways to increase collaboration between EWEB, the city of Eugene, Lane County, LTD, and other local agencies to leverage our collective will to make Eugene a better place.  We all have the same goals, and if we harness our energy, we can get there faster.

Leadership

There is no lack of knowledge on how to do things better, but there remains a barrier in getting that knowledge into practice.  And that barrier is one of leadership and communication gaps where different people and organizations talk past each other.  I believe, and have experience, in strong leadership, respectful communication, and working with others to get to ‘yes’ for the benefit of our community.
