Occupation: President of Ramsay Investments Inc., doing business as Don's Windows, Doors & More, Burns, Oregon, where I am an active staff member.
Occupational Background: Employed by our family corporation since 1973, I have been personally responsible for the financial well being of our building materials business. In 1986, I arranged financing for the construction of a 25,000 square foot retail store building that included 4 acres of dimensional lumber. This project created new employment for 25 people and dealt in several millions of dollars of sales yearly at a time when Oregon's economy was, again, not in good shape. On both a business and personal level, I have dealt with very large sums of money and negotiated for sizeable operating lines. I am a fiscal conservative that watches the bottom line closely while keeping a keen eye out for opportunities that others have overlooked.
Educational Background: 1965 graduate of Thurston High School, Springfield, Oregon; Four year National Honor Society member. 1968 graduate of Western Business College, Portland, Oregon; Majored in Accounting and Data Processing
Prior Governmental Experience: 1970's: Participated in the Legislative hearings process, held at the Oregon State Capital, relating to lien law issues that impacted the building materials industry. 1980's: I was member of and chaired the Linn County Economic Development Committee.
I am active participant in our ranches farming and livestock
I am a Master Woodland Manager graduate, through OSU Extension, with a background in practical timber management for private timber/woodlot owners.
I desire to serve the people of Harney County and share my life's experiences and insights to keep Harney County economically viable for both the present and the future.
