Former Secretary of State candidate, businessman and physician Knute Beuhler plans a run for Oregon State House of Representatives:
Well the cat is out of the bag. I’m considering a run for the Oregon House seat, representing District 54 #inBend. http://t.co/2xyEkeJ4in
From my friends over at Oregon Catalyst,
BEND, Ore. – Today Knute Buehler, a physician, business owner and 2012 candidate for Oregon Secretary of State, announced he is filing paperwork with the state Election Division to form a Political Action Committee to explore running for Oregon House of Representatives, District 54. Rep. Jason Conger currently represents HD 54, but he has announced he is running for the U.S. Senate.
“I discussed the possibility of running for District 54 with family and close friends. After much thought, I decided to take the next step and form an exploratory committee to build the resources and volunteer support needed to launch an aggressive campaign” stated Dr. Buehler. “I’ve lived in Bend for 16 years and Oregon most of my life. I’m committed to this city and I look forward to furthering the discussion of important issues facing our state and community.”
Buehler is a centrist Republican whose policies will probably piss me off a lot, but he’s qualified–indeed, OVER qualified for office. He’ll be running for higher office again soon.
