In the April 30, 2018, issue of the Register-Guard, the editorial board writes:
Measure 20-283: No. The measure would create an elected city auditor’s office — a potentially fruitful idea, but the proposal goes too far in terms of expense and not far enough in terms of accountability,
Measure 20-287: No. The Eugene City Council’s alternative to Measure 20-283 would create an appointed auditor’s position. The council muddied the waters by placing this proposal on the ballot.
