Six candidates are vying for the East Lane County Commissioner seat - reportedly the most jam-packed campaign locals have seen since the 2010 Springfield City Council race that was stacked with seven candidates.
The seat being contested is that of current East Lane Commissioner Gary Williams, 66. Last year, Williams was appointed to finish out former Commissioner Faye Stewart's term, after Stewart left to pursue a job with the City of Cottage Grove.
