The newcomers – all elected in November 2010 –represent the west side of the district.
Katie Eyre Brewer, R-Hillsboro, was elected to House District 29, a position formerly held by Rep. Chuck Riley, who stepped down last year to run for the state Senate. Brewer is a certified public accountant and has been active in the Greater Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce and the city of Hillsboro.
Rep. Shawn Lindsay takes over House District 30, formerly held by Rep. David Edwards, who dropped out of the Legislature in 2010 to concentrate on his career. Lindsay, R-Hillsboro, is an attorney with the law firm Lane Powell. He also is a fourth-generation Oregonian.
Rep. Julie Parrish now serves House District 37, a seat once held by Rep. Scott Bruun before his 2010 race for U.S. Congress. Parrish, R-West Linn, has not yet posted a biography on her website.
