Piercy Likely to Win Mayor Race

Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy appears likely to win a narrow re-election victory.

With about three-fourths of the vote counted at 7 pm, Piercy’s lead over Jim Torrey had widened from less than one percent to two percent, a few hundred votes to 1,363.

With the dwindling number of late counted ballots apparently favoring Piercy, it appears mathematically unlikely that Torrey will be able to make up the deficit.

Lane County Elections will release it’s next results, what appears likely to be a near complete vote count, by 10 am Thursday.
