A Promise Kept
I made a promise in 2010 to help make Lane County more business-friendly and help create jobs. At that time, Lane County had only 135,600 jobs and a 10.2% unemployment rate. Today, Lane County has 155,200 jobs and a 4.4% unemployment rate and the average weekly wages have increased by 7.9% and the number of businesses grew from 10,800 to 12,100 since I took office based on the most recent quarterly data available.
