Now that the question of the new senator in Oregon District 22 has been resolved with last week's appointment of Rep. Chip Shields
(D-Portland), Multnomah County Democrats must go through the whole process again of recommending replacements to the Multnomah County Board of Commissioners — this time for Shields in the House.
Karol Collymore, an aide to Multnomah County Commissioner Jeff Cogen who nearly won the Senate appointment last week from the county board, said today she's definitely going to make a run
at replacing Shields in House District 43
She'll be joining already-announced candidates Lew Frederick
, a communications consultant, state Board of Education member and former TV reporter; and Eddie Lincoln
, president of the Portland Community College Federation of Faculty and Academic Professionals, AFT Local 2277.
