Johnson Formally Steps Away From House Seat

Oregon State 52nd District Representative Mark Johnson formally steps away from the position today.  The Hood River Republican had announced last month he would leave the Legislature to serve as President and CEO of Oregon Business & Industries.  Johnson was a state representative for nearly seven years.  With Johnson’s resignation, Republican precinct committee persons living in House District 52 will vote to nominate three-to-five candidates to fill the vacancy.  County commissioners from Hood River, Clackamas and Multnomah Counties will then vote to select the next state representative for the district.  The vacancy must be filled within 30 days.
