Labor professor Gordon Lafer runs for school board

University of Oregon labor educator Gordon Lafer is running for Eugene School District Board. Lafer is a professor at UO’s Labor Education and Research Center, and once served as senior policy advisor to the Education and Labor Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives. His daughter is a seventh grader at Roosevelt Middle School in Eugene.

He’s seeking a four-year term on the school board, which is a nonpartisan office. Thus far, he’s running unopposed, but candidates have until March 21 to file.

Eugene School District 4J serves 16,000 K–12 students in a district that includes most of Eugene, plus the town of Coburg and a small part of Linn County to the north.

Ballots will be mailed out May 2 and are due back May 21.
