Rep. Deborah Boone (D – Cannon Beach) has filed for re-election to continue representing the north coast communities of House District 32.
“We’ve made big strides on Oregonians’ biggest priorities, but we still have a lot of work to do,” said Rep. Boone. “Last year, we passed the largest K-12 budget in state history, funded full-day Kindergarten for the first time, and made big investments in higher education. We also approved bonding for seismic upgrades for schools and public safety buildings that will make them safer in the event of earthquakes and will provide hundreds of jobs in the process.”
“I am running for re-election so that I can continue working to protect education and public safety funding, improve our economy and do my best to represent the people who call this district home. We know that there is a direct correlation between higher education and economic advantage and I will do everything I can to ensure that Oregonians have access to higher education. Whether they want to go straight to a vocational career path or to the full academic approach it is one of my top priorities.”
Rep. Boone has represented HD32 since 2004. Since then, she has led the House on key issues like emergency and tsunami preparedness, including introducing the Oregon Resilience Plan and creating a senior policy advisor position on resilience in the Governor’s office, promoting renewable energy projects, ocean and fisheries policy and services for seniors and veterans.
Previously, Rep. Boone served 16 years as a legislative assistant to seven legislators. She also served as a Clatsop County Commissioner. In addition, she was appointed by Governors to the Oregon Seismic Safety Policy Advisory Council, Pacific NW Economic Region, Pacific Fisheries Legislative Task Force, Oregon Ocean Resources Management Task Force (now the Ocean Policy Advisory Council), Public Commission on the Oregon Legislature, Juvenile Justice Advisory Council, and the Children’s Trust Fund of Oregon. She served her community for 16 years a volunteer firefighter.
