Thank you for visiting my legislative website.
I'm honored to have the opportunity to serve as State Senator for Senate District 30, which covers Baker, Grant, Harney, Jefferson, Malheur, Wasco, Wheeler & parts of Clackamas, Deschutes, Lake and Marion Counties. I look forward to working collaboratively with all members of the Oregon legislature to advance the priorities of rural Oregonians.
I serve as Vice Chair on the Senate Committee on Finance & Revenue, member on the Senate Committee on Environment & Natural Resources and a member on the Joint Committee on Transportation. During the interim I serve on the Joint Emergency Board. I served on the Governor's Wildfire Response Council, the Greater Eastern Oregon Regional Solutions Committee, the Autonomous Vehicles Task Force and the Road User Fee Task Force when I was in the House of Representatives. I am hopeful that my years of experience with the Bureau of Land Management will allow me to bring a fresh perspective and considerate approach to decision-making in the Oregon legislature.
