A longtime Deschutes County employee and political newcomer says she hopes to offer a choice to moderate voters in Central Oregon.  Geri Hauser is running as a Democrat for the State Senate seat in District 27, taking on well-known Republican, Tim Knopp.  Hauser said she was on the sidelines and then decided to run on the last filing day when she heard that Tim Knopp was running.  She thought that he may win in the primary, and says she wanted to offer voters a contrast.  "In the last four years, I've gotten more civic minded and joined the League of Women Voters, and gotten more involved in my AFSME group; been involved in that."  Geri Hauser makes computer maps for Deschutes County, and has worked for the county for 20 years.  At one point she also worked for Mount Bachelor.
