Bob Tiernan Announces for Governor
Another day, another candidate announcement for the gubernatorial primary.

Republican Bob Tiernan announced his entry into the growing candidate field Monday at a press event using a Portland homeless encampment as the backdrop. Tiernan’s remarks centered on Portland’s hot-button issues of homelessness, crime and lawlessness. “It's turning into a national disgrace with a reputation of crime, filth, riots and the problems are spreading into our suburbs." Said Tiernan.

Without getting into specific issues, Tiernan touts general problem-solving capabilities and an ability to overcome obstacles and get things done to his years of experience as a lawyer and leading multi-million-dollar companies.

“Being Governor requires being the Chief Executive over multi-billion-dollar bureaucracies with tens of thousands of employees. My professional background includes managing large multi-billion-dollar and million-dollar retailers with thousands of employees.” Although a late arrival to the crowded Republican field, Tiernan quickly jumped to the financial leaderboard with a $1,000,000 contribution to get his campaign started, including half a million dollars from both himself and RI-Grants Pass, LLC a company headquartered in Berkley, CA.

In addition to his experience as a Chief Executive, his academic credentials are noteworthy. He received a Bachelor of Science Degree from Oregon State University, a law degree from Seattle University and a Master’s of Law degree from Georgetown University. He has also distinguished himself with service to his country, retiring as a Commander in the Navy and Naval Reserves after nearly 30 years.

Bob Tiernan is certainly no stranger to Oregon politics. He served two terms representing Oregon’s 24th Legislative District which includes most of Lake Oswego and Southwest Portland from 1993 through 1997. During this tenure, he was the principal author of several ballot measures, all approved by Oregon Voters. Ballot Measure 11, a crime bill, set mandatory minimums for violent crime, Ballot Measure 8, a pension reform measure ending guaranteed-minimum pension increases and requiring public employees to contribute 6 percent of their salaries to help fund their pension. The court suppressed implementation of Measure 8 in 1996, (OSPOA v State). Ballot Measure 17 required prisoners to work full-time. Additionally, from 2009 through 2011 Tiernan was elected to serve as the Oregon Republican Party chairman.

Bob currently lives in Lake Oswego with his wife Carissa and has three grown children and seven grandchildren.

So far, 31 people have filed to fill Governor Brown’s vacated seat. 16 are Republicans and 15 are democrats and with the filing deadline not until March 8th, another day could well bring another candidate announcement -- or two.
