Board Appoints 3 to Budget Committee

Joshua Burstein, Gary Campbell and Anne Fifield selected for budget panel

The school board has appointed three 4J residents, Joshua Burstein, Gary Campbell and Anne Fifield, to serve on the district’s budget committee.

Mr. Campbell and Ms. Fifield will be new members of the budget committee. Mr. Burstein was first appointed to the committee in 2014 and has been reappointed to serve a third term. They will serve three-year terms expiring in 2023.

Mr. Burstein works as human resources manager at the Lane Council of Governments. Mr. Campbell is school liaison for Oregon GEAR UP, a program that works to increase the number of low-income students who enter postsecondary education. Ms. Fifield is the City of Eugene’s economic strategies manager.

The budget committee consists of seven appointed community volunteers and the seven elected school board members. Positions are non-partisan, unpaid, and are not connected to any specific region within the district.

The community members continuing their terms in 2020–21, in addition to Mr. Burstein, are Liz Price, Maya Rabasa, Juan Carlos Valle and Jennifer Winters Francois.

The budget committee reviews annual budget proposals to ensure that the district is planning to spend money in furtherance of district goals. The committee examines the proposed budget, listens to comments from community members, asks questions, and then approves the budget to forward to the school board for adoption.

Mr. Burstein, Mr. Campbell and Ms. Fifield were selected from among 14 qualified candidates for the budget committee openings. Although only three could be appointed to the committee, board members shared their appreciation and admiration for all of the applicants who volunteered to serve our community in this capacity.
