The first time Rep. Kevin Mannix served in the Oregon House (1989-1997) he was a Democrat. Understanding that Oregon Democrats no longer wanted him — after announcing a bid to run for Attorney General in 1996, Democrats recruited and supported Hardy Myers — he became a Republican in 1997. He served one more term in the House (1999-2001); apparently switching parties made little difference to his constituents. Now, 20 years later, he will again serve the community he loves in the Capitol.
His previous experience in the Legislature, along with his lifetime of high moral and ethical standards, definitely have definitely influenced his committee assignments for the 2023 session of the 82nd Legislative Assembly. He will co-chair both the Joint and House committees on Conduct while serving on five additional committees: the Joint committees on Information Management and Technology, Transportation, The Interstate 5 Bridge, and the Joint Ways and Means Subcommittee On Transportation and Economic Development, and the House Committee On Higher Education.
