Statesman Journal Article on Marion County Commissioner Race


Bill Burgess has name recognition in Marion County; Colm Willis has the financial backing.

Willis, a Republican, is a 32-year-old attorney from Stayton; Burgess, a Democrat, is the 67-year-old sitting Marion County Clerk from Salem.

The candidates for seat No.2 of Marion County Commission to replace Janet Carlson, who is not running for re-election, in the Nov. 6 general election are playing to their strengths.
