Representative Caddy McKeown is a 4th generation Oregonian, born and raised in Coos Bay. Her public service began on the Coos Bay school board, where she served for 11 years. She went on to be appointed to the Board of Commissioners of the Oregon International Port of Coos Bay, where she served for nine years and worked to acquire and rehabilitate the Coos Bay rail line. In 2012, she was elected to represent coastal portions of Coos, Douglas, Lane and Lincoln counties in the Oregon House of Representatives.

Committee assignments for the 2017 session included a spot on the House Agriculture & Natural Resources committee as well as continuation of her chairmanship of the House Transportation Policy committee. Most recently, she was appointed as Co-Chair of the Joint Committee on Transportation Preservation and Modernization, a role in which she and a bi-partisan, bi-cameral 14 member committee successfully designed a state-wide transportation package. She is also proud to be a member of the Legislative Commission on Indian Services, the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission, as well as serve on the Oregon Coastal Caucus.

When she can, she enjoys being home with her husband and three dogs.
