Organizations from across the public safety community have issued their endorsement of State Representative Greg Smith (R-Heppner) in his re-election bid for House District 57. They include Sheriffs of Oregon PAC, Oregon Chiefs of Police, Oregon AFSCME, Corrections PAC, and Oregon State Fire Fighters Council.
Over his years of service, Representative Smith has worked to help preserve services and resources for the region’s public safety community. He assisted Umatilla County in retaining their OSP Forensic Lab, which serves as the only forensic lab in Eastern Oregon. He has secured funding for additional OSP trooper positions and K-9 Units to patrol I-84, and he has supported funding to address the staff-inmate ratios at local correctional facilities.
“The individuals in our public safety services work hard and put their lives on the line to keep our families and communities safe,” said Smith. “I am honored to have received their endorsement and remain committed to finding the resources needed to meet the growing challenges they face.”
Representative Greg Smith is running for re-election for House District 57, which encompasses Umatilla, Morrow, Gilliam, Sherman, and Wasco Counties. During the May Primary Election, he won the nomination of all three major political parties – Republican, Democrat, and Independent.
