REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond retiree active in local politics is seeking the appointment to the District 59 House Seat, vacated last month by long-time State Representative John Huffmann (R-The Dalles).


Bob Perry spent 40 years in marketing, retiring as Director of Marketing for the Gillette Company. He served one four-year term on the Redmond School Board, beginning in 2011. And, since 2004, he's been a Precinct Committee Person for the Deschutes Republicans; he was elected Chair in 2015. In 2010, he founded the Redmond Patriots, serving as Chair for the last seven years. 


The House seat Perry hopes to fill came available at the end of last month when Rep. Huffman resigned to take a position with the Trump Administration, within the Department of Agriculture. County Commissioners from Deschutes, Jefferson, Wheeler, and Wasco counties are charged with filling the open seat by the end of this month.
