As South Eugene’s City Councilor, Matt is proud to have rescued funding for Greenhill Humane Society, preventing severe cuts to the well-being of animals most in need.

As a veterinarian, former practice owner and South Eugene constituent, I endorse Councilor Keating for re-election. He has worked tirelessly to maintain community services, including animal welfare, in a time of budget constraints.

On the heels of the Holiday Farm fire, Matt led the charge to ban fireworks, reducing the risk of wildfires in the south hills. Matt also helped prevent the closure of a local fire station. As such, Matt is proudly endorsed by first responders, the Lane Professional Firefighters: Local 851.

In 2023 Matt advanced a camping prohibition within 1000 ft. of our schools and library, ensuring our kids and seniors safe access to these vital education facilities. Simultaneously, Matt stabilized funding for Community Supported Shelters, connecting our unhoused population with critical housing and support services.

These wins were achieved because of constituent feedback and engagement from voters like you. Thank you for being informed and active!

Councilor Keating is honored to earn your support to continue serving as a progressive, pragmatic voice for South Eugene.
