Representative Dan Rayfield Files for Reelection

CORVALLIS—Dan Rayfield, Democratic Representative for Oregon House District 16, has filed for reelection to serve a second term in the legislature. House District 16 encompasses the cities of Corvallis and Philomath as well as Oregon State University. Rayfield, a partner with the law firm Nelson MacNeil Rayfield, was first elected to the post in 2014. The filing deadline for the May primary is March 8th, 2016.

“While we’ve done some historic things, I believe there is always room for improvement,” Rayfield said. “As a parent, business owner and community member, I remain committed to increasing funding for high-quality education, creating good-paying jobs, and preserving our quality of life for future generations.”  

During his first term, Rayfield developed a reputation amongst his colleagues as a dynamic legislator who stayed true to progressive principles while also fostering bipartisan camaraderie. Rayfield served as a key facilitator, successfully negotiating a bipartisan solution to shore up a $30 million budget short fall with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.  Following the 2015 session, Rayfield was elected by his peers to serve as Majority Whip in the House Democratic Leadership.

The Democratic Primary will be held on May 17th, 2016, and will be followed by the General Election on November 8th, 2016.
