Rep. Mark Johnson, a Republican from Hood River, filed Friday, Jan. 17, for his third term as state representative for Oregon's House District 52.
"It has been an honor to serve the constituents of House District 52 for the last two legislative sessions," Johnson said. "I look forward to continuing to fight for stronger schools and educational opportunities for our kids, growth for small businesses and local economies, and for more efficient government across the state."
House District 52 encompasses Hood River, Cascade Locks, Corbett, Sandy, parts of Estacada and Gresham, as well as other communities within the Hood River, Clackamas and Multnomah counties.
Johnson was elected to his first term in November 2010 and was then re-elected to his second term in November 2012. He also is serving his third term as a member of the Hood River County School Board.
For the 2013 legislative session, Johnson served on the House Higher Education and Workforce Development Committee and Consumer Protection and Government Efficiency Committee. He also was appointed as vice chairman of the Energy and Environment Committee. He will serve on these committees again during the upcoming February session.
