Media and Interested Parties

Lake Oswego School Board member Rob Wagner has been appointed to the Oregon Senate by Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington county commissioners.

Following the resignation by Sen. Richard Devlin, commissioners held a joint session earlier today 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. Senate District 19 includes voters in Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties. Finalists were selected by the Democratic Party, as deemed by state law.
