"GARY HANSEN'S EXPERIENCED LEADERSHIP AND INTEGRITY WILL BE ASSETS TO THE STATE LEGISLATURE. I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH HIM." Governor John Kitzhaber

"GARY HANSEN HAS SERVED HIS DISTRICT WITH DISTINCTION as a Multnomah County Commissioner and Metro Councilor. He's currently president of the Oregon Association of Counties, giving him unusually strong ties to rural interests that otherwise pay little heed to the needs of big-city, inner-city North Portland."

The Oregonian, April 13,1998

"(GARY HANSEN) IS HONEST AND DILIGENT. His tenure at Metro and the county give him a solid background in land use, community corrections and social service delivery ­ three key issues at the state level. Willamette Week, April, 1998

Gary D. Hansen has agreed to limit campaign expenditures for this General Election under ORS 260.180 but is not bound by that agreement because an opponent for this election has not agreed to limit expenditures or has exceeded the applicable spending limit.
