Representative Phil Barnhart Files for Re-Election
EUGENE – Phil Barnhart (D- Eugene/House District 11) filed paperwork with the Secretary of State to establish his 2014 candidacy for the Oregon House of Representatives today.
Phil Barnhart has been a leader in Oregon’s Legislature for over a decade, delivering for working families. Barnhart is committed to continue his fight to close unfair tax loopholes and end huge corporate giveaways so that we can put more resources in Oregon’s real priorities: education, health care, public safety, and the services that Oregonians rely on.
“We’ve made great strides in recent years to pull Oregon out of the recession, but we still have serious work to do to stabilize our schools, stimulate our local economy, and create more opportunities for working families,” Barnhart said. “It has been my honor to represent the people of Central Lane and Linn Counties, and I will continue working tirelessly to make sure that Oregonians are always put before the interests of big, out-of-state corporations.”
Barnhart is the Chair of the House Revenue Committee and serves on the House Rules Committee. If elected in 2014, the following term will be his eighth. For more information, visit http://philbarnhart.com/
