First elected in 2014 to replace his good friend Kim Thatcher when she moved to the Senate, Bill Post was already well-known as a political junkie and even insider from his "The Bill Post Radio Show". He spent over 35 years in the radio and television broadcasting world including the last nine as a talk show host in Salem and Keizer.
His penchant for provocation and competition, characteristics which served him well in radio, along with a fair dose of optimism, have helped him weather his first two terms in the Democrat-dominated legislature. From the friendly competition with colleague Rep. Mike Nearman to cast the most "No" votes for a session (they each have "won" once), to calling out supporters of the failed IP 43 by posting the public information identifying the chief petitioners on a Facebook site, Rep. Post consistently puts his conservative values up front and center.
At the May election, in addition to receiving the Republican nomination (he was unopposed), Rep. Post won nomination for the Independent Party of Oregon and Libertarian Party. He faces Democrat Dave McCall, a first-time political candidate also of Keizer.
I want there to be LESS Lawmakers and MORE Law reducers! I am not in office to create more laws but to keep those in the Oregon Legislature on the task that they have: create a budget and go home. Best case scenario, reduce the number of laws they have created over the last 20 years.
