Rep. Michael Dembrow (D-Northeast Portland) announced this morning he will seek the Senate seat Sen. Jackie Dingfelder (D-Northeast and Southeast Portland) vacated to go to work for Mayor Charlie Hales.

“Jackie has served residents of NE and SE Portland extremely well for the last 12 years.  She has led the effort to keep  Oregon’s environment safe for our children and grandchildren,” Dembrow said in a statement.    “I will do all I can to continue her good work, while bringing to the Senate my own strong background in education, human services, and workforce development.  I’ve worked closely with Senators of both parties during my time in the House and I know how to get important legislation passed."
