In a joint meeting today, Clackamas and Multnomah county commissioners unanimously appointed Ann Lininger to serve as state representative in House District 38.
Lininger will serve the remaining term of former state Rep. Chris Garrett, who resigned in December after accepting Gov. John Kitzhaber’s appointment to the Oregon Court of Appeals. The term is scheduled to expire in 2014.
Earlier this month, the Democratic precinct committee persons for House District 38, which comprises parts of Clackamas and Multnomah counties, nominated three candidates for consideration. The candidates were interviewed by commissioners in a meeting conducted by Clackamas County Commission Chair John Ludlow.
- Ann Lininger, general counsel for Oregon Iron Works and former Clackamas County commissioner.
- Sonya Fischer, a lawyer and advocate for disabled persons who is a board member for the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association.
- Moses Ross, a political consultant and chair of the Multnomah Neighborhood Association.
The meeting will be broadcast on the Clackamas County Government Channel beginning this week. View the week’s program schedule online: http://www.clackamas.us/miscapp/schedule.jsp
