DISTRICT 55, OR -- Vikki Breese Iverson is the new Representative for Oregon's District 55.
Deschutes County Commissioner Tony DeBone attended a meeting Thursday morning at the Crook County Courthouse, along with 12 of the 15 other County Commissioners who represent the 5 counties that make up District 55. He says some were there in person and others on the phone, and all went through an interview process with the 3 candidates that had been chosen earlier this month by Republican leadership from the 5 Counties - Vikki Breese Iverson, Peter Sharp, and Deborah Tilden.
DeBone says it was actually a unanimous decision to appoint Vikki Iverson, with even the other candidates supporting her.
Iverson is a real estate broker from Prineville, and experienced with working in the State Capitol in Salem, according to DeBone. He says she'll be an excellent Representative for the residents of Crook, Deschutes, Klamath, Jackson, and Lake Counties in the Oregon Legislature.
Iverson is taking over mid-term for Representative Mike McLane, who joined the 22nd Circuit Court as a judge in July. She will be eligible to run for District 55's Seat in 2020.
