On Monday, 9/27, the legislature passed SB 881, drawing the lines for our new sixth congressional seat, and SB 882, establishing new lines for our 30 Senate and 60 House seats. Both bills passed on a party-line vote. Of course, I stand united with the House and Senate Republican Caucuses in voicing that these maps were gerrymandered. These maps will be challenged in court.
Until then, here's what you need to know about the former House District 25: Keizer, St. Paul and Newberg....
Keizer is now in HD 21 which includes downtown Salem.
St. Paul is now in HD 18 which will include Silverton, Mt. Angel, Donald, etc.
Newberg is now in HD 23 which will include Dallas, Perrydale, etc.

I am deeply saddened by the turnout of this special session to pass redistricting measures. I have never seen such corruption in this building. You can read more here.
As always, please contact my office with any questions or concerns.
