Former Parkrose School Board Chair and HECC Commissioner James “Jamie” Woods will run in May 2018 Primary for Oregon House District 45.
Jamie will run his campaign highlighting his experience in education policy and energy conservation, focusing on the whole district -- not just the parts West of 82nd avenue -- as well as his extensive background in budgets and program evaluation.
“When I started thinking about how I would represent this district one of my first calls was to the Mayor of Maywood Park, a city within a city, and he told me in the 20 years he has been mayor that no legislative candidate has ever called him. ”
Jamie is an Assistant Professor of Economics at Portland State University, specializing in conservation behavior and a contract negotiator for his union, PSU-AAUP. He and his wife Allison Newman-Woods are 18-year residents of the Parkrose Heights Neighborhood and have, combined, three adult children, Nicholas, Joshua and Brianna.
