BEND, OR -- A Bend attorney is going to try to win the Democratic party nomination to run against incumbent Republican State Representative Jack Zika. 35 year old Emerson Levy says her campaign will focus on affordable housing, the environment and the shortage of affordable childcare in Central Oregon. Levy is married and has a 5 year old daughter. She and her family have lived in Bend since 2017. She says if she had been in the legislature last year, she would have voted for the billion dollar business tax for K-12 schools. Incumbent Zika voted no on the tax.
