OPRI Supports Winning Candidates in May Primary Election
The Oregon PERS Retiree PAC was proud to support legislative candidates during the May primary election on May 17, 2022. We are pleased to report that a majority of the candidates OPRI supported were successful in their primary races.
Representative Bobby Levy won her primary election in House District 58. With no opponent in November, Levy will continue to represent northeastern Oregon.
Thuy Tran won her primary in House District 45. The newcomer will appear unopposed on the November ballot.
Representative Ken Helm won his primary in House District 27 and will face his challenger in November. Helm has been a long-time supporter of PERS. In 2021, he sponsored OPRI priority bill HB 2375, which was later combined with OPRI’s HB 2867 to form HB 2875. The final bill passed and was signed into law, effective September 2021.
Representative Travis Nelson won his primary election and will continue to represent House District 44, as he will be unopposed on the November ballot.
Representative Daniel Bonham won his primary and will continue to campaign to represent Senate District 26.
Representative Lisa Reynolds won her primary election for House District 34 and will continue to campaign as she faces a challenger in November.
Representative WInsvey Campos won her primary and will continue her campaign for Senate District 18 for the November election.
OPRI supports candidates who stand behind the hard-working people who earn PERS benefits. We look forward to continuing to advocate for PERS recipients at the Legislature in 2023.
