Suzanne Weber Announces Run for State Senate
Region will see some changes in leadership

Oregon House District 32 Representative Suzanne Weber (R-Tillamook) has announced that she will be running for State Senate, replacing Senate District 16 Senator Betsy Johnson, who will be running for Governor of Oregon, unaffiliated with any party. There have been other recent campaign announcements in the region, following on the recent redistricting decisions of the State Legislature.

"Although Senator Johnson is leaving, I am excited to announce my candidacy to be that voice. I’m running for the Oregon Senate!" said Weber. “I have appreciated the opportunity to serve as your state representative. If I am elected your state senator I will continue to keep the voices of all my constituents first while I am serving you in Salem. I will keep listening and representing you because I am one of you.”

Weber has governmental experience in the area. As Tillamook Mayor, Suzanne focused on economic development issues that were seen as critical to the rural communities in House District 32. As a longtime local elected official, Suzanne says she is a big believer in state legislation that protects the ability of Oregon’s distinct communities to decide for themselves what their priorities are.



Suzanne says she is strongly opposed to the myriad of tax, fee and regulation increases coming out of Salem, including the hidden sales tax, cap & trade, and the new mattress tax. She says she would have voted against the 2019 bill that stole over $100 million from Oregonians’ kicker tax checks.

Suzanne has experience as a school teacher and has served in several roles in her local unions, including as a negotiator and a teacher representative.

The full announcement video was posted on Facebook.
