On February 1st, the Clackamas County and Marion County Commissioners selected Bill Kennemer to serve until the 2022 election. The counties hosted a joint public meeting to select the State Senator to replace Alan Olsen who retired in early January.
The three candidates were Steve Bates, John Lee and Bill Kennemer. The Commissioners interviewed all three candidates and spoke very highly of all of their qualifications and any one of them would make a great State Senator. In the end the Commissioners chose Bill because of his experience in the legislature.
We appreciate John and Steve willingness to serve and we thank them for all they have given to the Party over the years. We are a better Party because of their leadership and service.
We are here to help and support State Senator Kennemer and thank him for continuing his service to our County.
