  • Some powerful interests want to light a fire under lawmakers who are considering giving the seven campuses of the Oregon University System more autonomy. As first reported at wweek.com, five men, including Nike Chairman Phil Knight, former University of Oregon Athletic Director Pat Kilkenny, Columbia Distributing Chairman Ed Maletis and Endeavour Capital Managing Director John von Schlegell have each written $65,000 checks to Oregonians for Higher Education Excellence. Columbia Sportswear CEO Tim Boyle, one of the PAC’s founders, gave $62,500.“If the PAC is to be used, it wouldn’t be supporting candidates but instead focused on an initiative petition,” Boyle tells WW. “Our preference is to see a legislative solution.”
