Rick Lewis appointed to Oregon House District 18 vacant seat

Silverton Mayor Rick Lewis has been appointed to the Oregon House of Representatives by Clackamas and Marion county commissioners.

Following the resignation of Representative Vic Gilliam from the Oregon House of Representatives, commissioners held a joint session earlier this afternoon to interview candidates and select a replacement.

The session was videotaped and will be archived in the coming days on Clackamas County’s YouTube Channel and broadcast on the Clackamas County Government Channel and Capital Community Television in Marion County.

Oregon law requires that a legislative vacancy be filled by county commissioners representing the district in which the vacancy exists. House District 18 includes voters in Clackamas and Marion counties. Finalists were selected by the Republican Party, as deemed by state law.

For more information, members of the media or public may contact Clackamas County Public Information Officer Tim Heider at 503-742-5911 or Marion County Public Information Officer Jolene Kelley at 503-566-3937.
