Salinas appointed to Oregon House District 38 vacant seat

Andrea Salinas has been appointed to the Oregon House of Representatives by Clackamas and Multnomah county commissioners.

Following last month’s resignation by Representative Ann Lininger 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.

Oregon law requires that a legislative vacancy be filled by county commissioners representing the district in which the vacancy exists. House District 38 includes voters in Clackamas and Multnomah counties. Finalists were selected by the Democratic Party, as deemed by state law.

For more information, members of the media and public may contact Clackamas County Public Affairs Manager Tim Heider at 503-742-5911 or theider@clackamas.us, or Multnomah County Communications Director Julie Sullivan-Springhetti at 503-502-2741 or julie.sullivan-springhetti@multco.us.
