A Champion for Local Schools

Greg Macpherson will continue to seek long-term solutions for Oregon schools, to assure that our children receive the quality education they need.

Protecting our Quality of Life

    — Stephanie Wagner, Executive Director, Friends of Tryon Creek

Greg Macpherson received both the Democratic and Republican nominations in this year's primary election – proof that his leadership rises above partisan politics.

"It's a well-deserved free ride for Rep. Greg Macpherson, D-Lake Oswego, in the House District 38 legislative race…..During his now-finished freshman term, Macpherson stood out as a shining light of competence in Salem, helping to lead the way on such diverse issues as PERS reform, budgets and insurance."
