Prineville state lawmaker is running for seat that will serve Crook County after redistricting

PHOTO - Rep. Vikki Breese IversonRep. Vikki Breese Iverson announced her official kick off campaign for the primary 2022 for the redistricted House District 59. House District 59 includes all of Crook County and northern portions of Deschutes County and most of Jefferson County.

"Redistricting removed some incredible people from my district, but I know they will be in good hands with Representative Reschke." Iverson said about losing the southern portions of House District 55. "However, being able to represent the farms, ranches and communities in Jefferson and Deschutes counties along with my home county of Crook will be incredible. My family roots run deep in Central Oregon, and I am proud to say the Breese's have been farming and ranching alongside Jefferson and Deschutes County folks for generations."

Iverson points out that she successfully brought a lot of resources home to her counties in the past legislative session, including $13 million for a new justice center in Crook County, wildland firefighting equipment for Lake County, wastewater treatment dollars for Crescent and Gilchrist, ODOT enhancements for La Pine and more.

"Central Oregonians could not have a better, more effective advocate in the state House of Representatives than Vikki Breese Iverson," said former Congressman Greg Walden. "She has farming and ranching in her blood. She understands what it takes to get the economy on track again. She's a good listener who takes what she hears and works well with others to find solutions. I'm delighted to support her. Salem would be a lot better place if we had more Vikki Breese Iversons in office."

Iverson will be holding campaign and town hall stops in Prineville, Redmond, Terrebonne, Madras, Crooked River Ranch and Sisters. The dates and times for these campaign and town hall locations will be posted on her website,
