Former reporter authors book

Former Estacada News reporter Scott Jorgensen recently published his book, “Transition: Moving into Leadership in Hard Times,” through Ridenbaugh Press.

Jorgensen’s book follows his career fluctuations from helping to run a weekly newspaper in Josephine County to being the field director for a statewide ballot measure campaign.

As the book progresses, Jorgensen observes the trend of young politicians being elected to legislative seats throughout Oregon.

Jorgensen is now a deputy communications director for the Oregon House Republican Office.
