GRANTS PASS, Oregon – Conservative State Representative Christine Goodwin (R-Canyonville) announced her decision to run for the Republican nomination for the Oregon State Senate. Oregon Senate District 2 is comprised of great communities in Josephine, Southern Douglas, and Northern Jackson Counties.
“I am running for Senate to continue my fight to protect Southern Oregon values. Serving others has always been a passion for me, but my time in Salem has taught me just how crucial it is that we have experienced, conservative leaders fighting back against the radical agenda of Portland Democrats that has been ruining our great state for over a decade. Doing so is the only way we can meet the needs of our communities and ensure our voice gets heard in our State Capitol.”
Representative Goodwin has a lengthy history of public service outside of being a current State Representative: School Board Chairman, Urban Renewal Board member, Parks Advisory Board member, Douglas County Planning Commission member, and later as a Douglas County Commissioner. She served Southern Oregon as a State Representative for House District 2 before being elected by an overwhelming majority to represent the people of House District 4 in 2022 after redistricting.
“The more our values were attacked and ignored in Salem, the more my constituents asked me to speak for them. I will be that energetic voice in the Senate refusing to give up pushing for real solutions for our failing schools, out-of-control homelessness, rampant drug crisis and the surge in crime it brings with it. Now is a time for leadership in the State Senate, and I am up for the challenge.”
Goodwin is a former school teacher, successful owner of multiple small businesses, and was named Woman of the Year by Myrtle Creek/Tri City Chamber of Commerce. She is also a proud wife, mother, and grandmother.
The primary election will be held on May 21, 2024. Learn more about Christine Goodwin at www.electgoodwin.com.
