Local photographer Larry Ericksen was voted as a delegate for the Oregon Republican Party at their statewide convention June 23, the lone Columbia County Republican who will represent this region at the party's national convention in August.

The Scappoose resident and owner of Mossbarger Photography will join 27 other Oregon delegates in Tampa, Fla. from Aug. 27 to Aug. 30. Ericksen is a member of the party's precinct committee and also president of the Professional Photographers of Oregon.

Ericksen said he is pleased to represent county republicans in naming a presidential nominee.

"I count this a great honor and privilege to serve and represent the voters from our great state," he said in a statement.
