This morning we got some juicy news. News that excites us to no end. Our friend and longtime friend and advocate for the GLBT community is looking at throwing her hat in the ring to take the soon to be open Oregon Senate seat (District 22).
Via Blue Oregon:
Blue Oregon editor (and Staff Assistant to Multnomah County Commish Jeff Cogen) Karol Collymore is considering adding her name to the list of those to be considered to replace retiring State Senator Margaret Carter.
Carter is resigning in order to take a newly-created post as deputy director of the Department of Human Services.
Collymore, 31, has worked for Commissioner Cogen since January of 2007. She has previously worked with NARAL, Basic Rights Oregon, and as a fundraiser for Supreme Ct Judge Virgina Linder.
