Police Officer Announces State House Bid
Adam Baker hopes to represent the Oregon City and Gladstone areas

Police officer, veteran and local community leader Adam Baker (R-Oregon City) recently filed to run for House District 40, which covers Gladstone and Oregon City. The district is currently represented by Representative Mark Meek (D-Oregon City), but the boundaries will have changed due to redistricting. Representative Meek has announced he is running for the Oregon Senate, leaving the seat vacant for the next election.

Adam Baker has served in multiple capacities as a Police Officer and Detective with the city of Gresham for the past 23 years. He is focused on taking this experience to the legislature to lead the efforts in creating safer communities for all Oregonians, especially those living in Oregon City and Gladstone which is seeing the spill over of crime from Portland.

“Our neighborhoods and towns deserve to be represented by someone who understands the complex issues in front of us. Exploding violence and property crimes are out of control in Portland area, it is time for new leadership in Oregon.” said Baker. “I believe we need new leadership in Salem to curb government overreach infecting our lives, businesses and schools. This is why I am stepping up. Oregonians deserve better.”

Baker is focused on bringing local control back to the community. “It is important for us to balance some of the radical legislation that has been passed in recent years. I will bring a common-sense approach to business, education and public safety, which has been lacking for far too long,” Baker commented.
