Occupation: Farmer; Legislator

Occupational Background: Foster Grandparent Director – Non profit agency allowing limited income seniors to earn supplemental income acting as volunteers within classrooms helping teachers and at-risk kids; ACCESS (a community action agency) fundraising, programs to prevent homelessness, providing job counseling and medical care for the needy; Gilman Dairy – Owner/operator of family dairy farm for 26 years.

Educational Background: Crater High; Oregon State, (Dairy Husbandry); Southern Oregon University, BS General Studies (Science-Math)

Prior Governmental Experience: Oregon State Representative, District 50; Rogue Community College Board Chairman; Republican Precinct Committeeman; Rogue Valley Transportation District Board; Oregon Beef Council; Oregon Dairy Products Commission; Oregon Community Service Commission

During the 2003 session, Gilman served as Vice-Chair of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee and was a member of the ransportation Committee.

During the interim, Rep Gilman is appointed to the House Task Force on Land Use and the Joint Committee on Transportation, Trade and Economic Development. He serves on the Council of State Governments’ Agriculture and Rural Policy Task Force.

We did accomplish significant goals in the 2003 session: PERS reform; funds to repair failing bridges; reduction of state employees; improved agency efficiency with greater consumer satisfaction and helping rural doctors obtain malpractice insurance.

District 55 needs a representative in Salem who can get things done, and I believe I’m that person. We have critical issues that face us, especially in land use reform. My goal is to get local control back into the land use planning process.

Other issues that need attention include job creation; public school funding; public safety; and care for our seniors in need. I want the people of District 55 to know I am in Salem to help them.

Gilman is a lifelong Oregon resident. He and his wife Sandy have two children and two grandchildren. Currently they raise feeder cattle and his volunteer activities include being a Key Communicator for Eagle Point School District 9 and Quail Point Rotary Program Chair.
