As a mid-term Senator, Schrader’s resignation was required in order to fulfill his duties as a newly elected member of the United States House of Representatives.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Unites States Congressman-Elect Kurt Schrader submitted his resignation to Secretary of State Bill Bradbury yesterday. Schrader was re-elected to serve Senate District 20 in 2006 after serving one term prior in the Senate and three terms in the Oregon State House of Representatives.
“I’ve made my home and operated my business in this district for over twenty years,” said Schrader, who owns a working farm in Canby and operates the Clackamas County Veterinary Clinic in Clackamas.
“People in Senate District 20 know me as a champion for improving education, protecting human services, and looking out for public safety. I feel proud of the work that I’ve been able to accomplish in our state capitol and I’m looking forward to the next challenge.”
As a mid-term Senator, Schrader’s resignation was required in order to fulfill his duties as a newly elected member of the United States House of Representatives. Senate District 20 is comprised of the communities of Canby, Gladstone, Oregon City, Milwaukie and surrounding areas.
Upon Congressman-Elect Schrader’s resignation, it is up to the Secretary of State to notify the Clackamas County Democratic Central Committee.
The Central Committee has ten days to submit three to five nominees for the vacant seat to the Clackamas County Commission. The Commission then has twenty days to make a final selection on the appointment to Senate District 20.
