REDMOND, OR -- A former Harney County Commissioner is the newest member of the Oregon House. Republican Mark Owens is a small business owner from Crane and was sworn in late last week at a Redmond Church. The Oregonian reports Owens was chosen by Eastern Oregon county commissioners to replace Vale Republican State Representative Lynn Findley in House District 60. Last month Findley was appointed to the Oregon Senate seat vacated by Cliff Bentz who is running for Greg Walden’s seat in Congress. Before he was appointed, Owens had filed to run for Findley’s house seat.
