Bill Kennemer has been appointed to the Oregon Senate by Clackamas and Marion county commissioners.
Following last month’s resignation by Sen. Alan Olsen from the Oregon Senate, commissioners held a joint session earlier this afternoon to interview candidates and select a replacement.
The session was held over Zoom and will be archived on Clackamas County’s YouTube Channel soon.
Oregon law requires that a legislative vacancy be filled by county commissioners representing the district in which the vacancy exists. Senate District 20 includes voters in Clackamas and Marion counties. Finalists were selected by the Republican Party, as deemed by state law.
