Campaign to change Jackson County government aims for November 2024 vote

Josephine County is the focus of efforts to change the structure of county government, and it is not alone in the trend, even in the Rogue Valley. Jackson County is also home to a group that seeks a five-member Board of Commissioners, rather than the three-member board of today.

The group,Jackson County for All of Us, also envisions nonpartisan elections for commissioner and a reduction in salaries for board members. Denise Krause, a former commissioner candidate, and David Gilmour, who served as an elected commissioner, join us to talk about the specifics of their plan, and the reasons for it.
