The rumors that I will stand for election to Senate District 23, currently held by Senator Avel Gordly, in the coming election cycle are correct.
I will file for the office after Senator Gordly returns from her trip to Ghana in early September.
There will be a celebration to mark the event (details TBA.)
I will continue to serve as Senator Gordly’s Chief of Staff through the interim, as we prepare for the February 2008 Special Session, and through the end of her term.
I am deeply moved by the many voices of support and encouragement I am receiving, and I will do my best to honor your trust as we both move Oregon forward and end the war in Iraq.
