Representative Gary Leif Passes
A convention of Precinct Committeepersons will be called

State Representative Gary Leif (R-Roseburg) died today after a battle with cancer.

Oregon House Republican Leader Christine Drazan released the following statement following the news of Oregon Representative Gary Leif’s passing:

“I am deeply saddened by the unexpected loss of our friend and colleague Gary Leif. Gary’s sense of humor, his commitment to bipartisanship and his love of family and community marked his service in the Oregon Legislature.

I am grateful for my time working directly with Gary. His energy and enthusiasm accomplished great work for his district, and he will be sorely missed.

Not only was he a valued colleague, but he was also a mentor and supporter within our caucus. He would frequently check on members to see how they were doing and provide helpful advice. His patient and humble demeanor was a constant and positive presence, especially for freshmen legislators looking for guidance in their new roles.

On behalf of the House Republican Caucus, we send our deepest condolences to Gary’s wife Carol and his family.”

Senate Republican Leader Fred Girod (R-Lyons) issued the following statement:

“It was an honor and a privilege to work with Representative Leif over the last several years. It was a pleasure to serve with him on the Ways and Means committee this last session. He was an honest and hard-working representative for the people of Southern Oregon. His common-sense approach to issues was a bright spot in the legislature, one that will not be easily filled. I am praying for his wife, family, and friends during this difficult time.”

A convention of the Republican Precinct Committeepersons living in House District 2 from the counties of Douglas, Jackson and Josephine will be called by the Oregon Republican Party to nominate between three and five nominees to present to those county commissioners for the appointment of his successor.
