HAPPY VALLEY, OR – Libertarians in House District 51 nominated Lori Chavez-DeRemer to be their candidate for State Representative in November. The primary election occurred on June 26th, where Mayor Chavez-DeRemer got the nod via write-in.
“Voters across House District 51 are frustrated and sick of the current leadership down in the State Legislature,” said Chavez-DeRemer. “Oregonians from all sides of the political spectrum are now joining our campaign. I’ve gracefully accepted the Libertarian Party’s nomination to be their candidate of choice in November I look forward to working with the Libertarian Party to help advance their issues and platform.”
Chavez-DeRemer shares some of the fiscal priorities that the Libertarian Party holds. Happy Valley enjoys more than $2.4 million in fiscal reserves and saved taxpayer dollars when it counted.
“As Mayor, it has always been my priority to save taxpayer dollars, said Chavez-DeRemer. Happy Valley has one of the lowest permanent tax rates in the State of Oregon and we paid off our city debts a decade early, a move which saved taxpayers more than $900,000.”
Don Crawford, a local Happy Valley resident and Libertarian voter in House District 51, voiced enthusiastic support for Chavez-DeRemer’s Libertarian nomination.
“Our priorities in the state of Oregon are to cut wasteful spending, support small business growth, and find a way to fix PERS,” Crawford said. “Lori believes in all these concerns that the Libertarians in the state share. She will be an excellent choice for Libertarians and other disenfranchised voters heading into November.”
“We are hearing every day at the doors that their current representation is simply not listening,” Chavez-DeRemer said. “Having multiple parties appear next to my name on the ballot is a strong testament to my willingness to listen and putting party politics aside. Folks like Don are the reason I serve and I look forward to representing House District 51 after November.”
Mayor Chavez-DeRemer heads into the November election with the Republican, Independent, and Libertarian nominations, and all three parties will appear next to her name on the ballot.
