Lincoln County Commissioner Claire Hall has dedicated her life to the public – first as a newspaper and radio journalist, and currently as a four-term county commissioner.
I continue to be amazed at her work ethic, her dedication to this community and her availability when a constituent wants to meet with her.
Driving down the I-5 corridor, you'll pass some of the best high schools in Oregon. Driving down highway 101 is a different story. Being a local high school student, I've witnessed Oregon's textbook case of educational inequality firsthand.
I have known Claire Hall for over thirty years. We met in the late 1980s while she was a broadcast journalist and I was a deputy district attorney for Lincoln County.
We are fortunate to live in a democracy where we can elect our officials. With this privilege, we also have the responsibility to inform ourselves before deciding on the best candidate.
