2014 is quickly coming to a close. I am humbled to say that I am finishing strong and am grateful for the family, friends and supporters that have made this so. On Monday, January 5, 2015 at 9 AM I will take the oath of office as a Marion County Commissioner. I invite you to join me for the ceremony. It will take place in the Senator Hearing Room at Courthouse Square, 555 Court St NE, Salem; and the Honorable Judge Thomas Hart will officiate. There will be a cake and punch reception immediately following the ceremony. It would be an honor to have you in attendance.
