Speakers to Explain Different Types of County Government

Are you confused about the difference between a General Law county and a Home Rule county?

On Tuesday, October 17, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Umpqua Valley Arts Center, 1624 W. Harvard Ave. in Roseburg, the League of Women Voters of Umpqua Valley will feature Joe Leahy and Bill Van Vactor speaking about different forms of county governance.

Mr. Leahy teaches Local Government Law at U of O Law School. He was City Attorney for the City of Springfield and is Legal Counsel for the Springfield Utility Board.

Bill Van Vactor was Lane County Legal Counsel for 15 years and then Lane County Administrator for 15 years. Lane County operates under a Home Rule Charter.

The League is nonpartisan, and encourages informed voting.

The meeting is free and open to the public. There will be time for questions. For more information, call 541-672-1914.
