Jeff Helfrich of Hood River has been appointed to the Oregon State House District 52 seat.  The 49-year-old was selected by a unanimous vote of Multnomah, Clackamas and Hood River County Commissioners to fill out the remainder of the term of Mark Johnson, who stepped down to become President and CEO of Oregon Business and Industries.  Helfrich has had a long career in law enforcement, including 25 years in community policing with the Portland Police Bureau, and served in the U.S. Air Force.  Helfrich has served as a member of the Cascade Locks City Council, Cascade Locks Planning Commission, Cascade Locks Budget and Charter Review Committee and Mid-Columbia Economic Development District Board of Directors.  The District 52 seat will be on the November 2018 ballot.
