Local news in brief
Neron announces re-election campaign
State Rep. Courtney Neron, D-Wilsonville, announced that she is running for re-election in 2020 in a press release last week.
Neron earned an upset victory over former House District 26 representative Richard Vial in the 2018 election and completed her first legislative session in June. The Villebois resident served on the Education Committee, the Veterans Preparedness Committee and the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Natural Resources.
"This is incredibly meaningful work and it has been an honor to serve. I have kept my initial motivation for running close to my heart and show up every day in honor of all of the students I have taught and all of the educators I have taught with," Neron said in the release. "In addition to supporting investments in education, I hope the many diverse communities in my district feel represented. I have learned an incredible amount about so many fascinating issues and met hundreds of community members in House District 26 along the way. I hope to continue learning, representing, and advocating for Oregonians in Salem."
