Three Nominated For District 59 Vacancy

Three people have been nominated to fill the remainder of John Huffman’s term as Oregon State Representative for District 59.  Mae Huston of Jefferson County, Bob Perry of Deschutes County, and Daniel Bonham of The Dalles are the nominees.  Republican committee members from Wasco, Jefferson, Deschutes, and Wheeler counties made the selections over the weekend.  County Commissioners from the four counties will meet to make the appointment.  No date has been set for that to take place, but under state law it must occur by November 30.  Huffman resigned last month as he accepted an appointment from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  His term expires at the end of 2018.
