    Hall tries to unseat Fadeley in District 42 rac
There are no Republican
candidates in District 42.
Rep. Nancie Fadeley, D
Eugene, the Dist. 42 incumbent,
says that if re-elected she would
continue her work on environ
mental areas relevant to her
district and to generally contin
ue her work for the citizens of
Fadeley, a 10-year legislative
veteran who has served as
chairer of the House Environ
ment and Emergency commit
tee for the past three legislative
sessions, says her record shows
she represents the citizens.
Especially in light of the
recession economy, jobs and
employment would continue to
have a high priority on her
legislative agenda, she says.
But emphasis must be shifted
from ‘‘high technology which
destroys jobs” to
“people-oriented jobs" such as
home industry and job sharing.
“People want to work,” she
says. "And they should have
every opportunity to work — in
places besides the forest
products industry.”
Fadeley, who has recieved
the endorsement of several
local labor groups, says she
would "continue to have a part

policy. The potential for em
ployment and improving the job
situation is there — if we'll
decrease reliance on oil and
emphasize alternatives.”
"The money we spend abroad
for higher and higher priced
energy has caused our inflation
rate to soar.
"The federal government’s
ability to handle the energy si
tuation doesn’t inspire con
fidence, so Oregon’s role is
tremendously important," she
says. ‘‘Our state’s history is a
proud one of showing leader
ship in other areas in the past.
And our legislation today
promoting conservation and the
utilization of renewable re
sources makes us a leader in
energy self-sufficiency.”
Fadeley also chides the
federal government for failing to
establish a national home build
ing policy. ‘‘They’ve (the
government) relied on the in
dustry perspective, not the

by cutoffs, layoffs and housing

"This is a contest between

Springfield needs to be
represented by a person who
lives in Springfield, says District
42 candidate Peggy Hall.
“I live in Springfield. I work in
Springfield. I understand the
needs of people in Springfield,”
Hall says. "I don’t think Nancie

bent) is in touch with tne people
of Springfield.”
Hall, who works as a veneer

Co. in Springfield, says inflation
and rising unemployment are

Hall accuses Fadeley of being
“out of touch” with Springfield.
“My opponent has been in the
legislature for 10 years, and yet
her record is undistinguished.
Her accomplishments have
been few and her representa
tion of (Springfield) needs has
been indifferent.”
Hall also accuses Fadeley of
being a one-issue legislator,
concentrating on environmental
issues rather than the problems
which "effect the people."
Hall is a member of the Me
tropolitan Area Planning Advi
sory Committee and president
of the Lane County chapter of
an organization called Oregon
Women for Timber, a pro-in
