State Representative Dave Hunt announces his candidacy today for Clackamas County Commission Chair and I am one of thousands who look forward to working with him when elected to his new position.
Representative Hunt is a true public servant and I am ecstatic that he will have additional time in his new position to put renewed focus on our problems more directly here at home.
Dave’s brokered some of the most important accomplishments in recent legislative history- he spearheaded the transportation package-creating thousands of jobs- and provided health insurance to Oregon’s uninsured children. He stood up for economic development while continuing to support Clackamas County education, including Oregon’s largest professional-technical center, the Sabin-Schellenberg Center in the North Clackamas School District.
I consider Dave a true friend and encourage my neighbors, my fellow public education supporters and everyone else to support his candidacy. He believes in helping our children, the middle class, and the elderly and has proven his convictions through hard work and dedication.
Clackamas County deserves leadership like Dave’s. We need someone with the skills and experience to navigate the complex issues facing our county. I am proud of Dave’s accomplishments at the state level but I’m even prouder he is coming home.
