EUGENE, Ore. – Eugene City Council candidate Sean Dwyer released a statement Tuesday in which he explained why despite trouble with police he won’t be dropping out of the race for office.
Dwyer is a candidate for Ward 1 councilor.
In January Dwyer was arrested and accused of disorderly conduct and menacing with a gun at the Buy 2 store in Eugene. He now says that incident was a mistake.
In his statement Dwyer said that he now has a unique view of how the justice system works.
Dwyer went on to say: “As stated before I am a not a politician, I am a student, I am a worker, I am a human being that sometimes makes mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes in life, taking ownership of these mistakes and learning from them is important. I hope that the voters of Ward 1 will vote for a councilor who is truly a man of the people.”
The primary election for Eugene City Council is on May 19.
