When my family and I moved to Eugene from Seattle in 1989, I knew South
University was the right neighborhood for all of us. There were so many reasons: excellent schools, involved and interesting residents, architectural variety, walkability to the university, shops, parks, schools and more.

Marsha Shankman. I am a longtime SUNA resident, having lived in the same 1920s-era house in the neighborhood since 1985. Both my daughters attended Edison Elementary School. I have served on the SUNA Board since 2008, during which time I have seen the many positive effects of Board-initiated projects. I enjoy working with a dedicated group of Board members and neighbors to preserve the livability of our wonderful neighborhood. I look forward to continuing to engage in neighborhood planning and am committed to the active support of Edison School, pursuing improvements to University Park, making sure that our neighborhood is well marked with street signs, and working with the University to assure that our neighborhood best serves the needs of our diverse residents, including students, seniors, and families.
I would like to continue to serve on the SUNA board as an active member.

I love spending time outside with my kids and mucking around in my own garden where we always see neighbors who stop to chat. I hope to have your vote so that I can continue to serve the neighborhood in an official capacity. Thank you.
