Jeff Towery

Assistant City Manager, City of Springfield

President, Oregon City/County Managers Association

Jeff Towery has shown a true commitment to the next generation of local government leaders during his term as president of Oregon City/County Manager’s Association (OCCMA). He has effectively put into action what has been talked about for years which is providing opportunities for young professionals in local government. So you might be asking, “What has Jeff done for me?” Here is your answer:

  • Strengthened the relationship between ELGL and OCCMA.
  • Championed the ELGL-Eugene chapter.
  • Provided an opportunity at the OCCMA Conference for several young professionals with the City of Springfield to present their view of cross-generational relationships.
  • Granted scholarships for the OCCMA Conference.
  • Proactively sought the input and participation of underrepresented groups in OCCMA.

Thanks Jeff, and we look forward to continuing to work with you and OCCMA.
