Government Services Division Director, Howard Schussler, began working at LCOG in 2016. He oversees the administration of the division’s programs and services.
Howard’s favorite part about his job is getting to work with the talented people at LCOG. He also enjoys working directly with people from almost every government, school, utility, and special district in and near Lane County.
Howard studied Organizational Leadership at Gonzaga University. He previously worked as the Assistant Public Works Director for Lane County. His first career was in the U.S. Air Force. He’s taken away two life-long passions from that. First, having worked throughout the U.S. and around the world, social justice and respectful human relations have become core values for him. Second, as a veteran, he’s concerned about veterans’ issues, and in particular, homelessness and struggling vets.
