By adding much of the rural stretch between Gervais and Newberg, redistricting only helped secure the district to Republicans for the next decade. Rep. Rick Lewis earned his fourth term with just over 68% of those who voted approving of his job performance (68.7% district turnout). Rep. Lewis, in addition to his three terms in the legislature, packs over a decade of local government experience, primarily in law enforcement. He had just been re-elected to his second term as Mayor of Silverton in November 2016. He had unseated Stu Rasmussen in 2014 in his first try at public elective office. He had served the city as its city manager for eight months (2011-12) and its chief of police (2008-2012); he previously served as police chief in Bandon, OR for two years (2006-08).

For the 82nd Legislative Assembly, Rep. Lewis will be quite busy, owing to his committee assignments. Rep. Lewis continues his position as Vice-Chair of the House Committee On Emergency Management, General Government, and Veterans (renamed with added scope). He will join Rep. Jami Cate on the Joint Committee On Ways and Means, while his many years as a police chief have earned him a spot on the committee's Subcommittee On Public Safety. He also continues in his position on the House Committee On Judiciary
