Commissioner Bozievich to retire at end of current term

Dec. 24, 2021 — On Dec. 17, Lane County Commissioner Jay Bozievich announced that he will not be running for re-election and will retire at the end of his current term. Bozievich is currently serving as a county commissioner for the West Lane – District 1 through Jan. 3, 2023.

“I am proud of what Lane County has accomplished while I served,” Bozievich said. “We went from being on a list of counties that could go bankrupt to the highest financial stability rating from Moody’s in the history of Lane County. We went from scandals and secret meetings to earning enough trust with citizens in May 2013 to pass the first public safety levy in a generation — after 14 unsuccessful attempts — and renewed that levy in May 2017 by an almost 3-1 vote.”
Bozievich will have served three complete four-year terms as a commissioner and previously served one four-year term on the Lane Community College Board of Education. Prior to being elected as a commissioner, he practiced civil engineering for 29 years. He will turn 65 before the end of his current term.

“I look forward to continuing to represent the citizens of West Lane to the best of my ability through the end of my term and I want to thank the citizens for the trust they placed in me for the last 11 years,” Bozievich said.
