House District 19

General Election, November 8, 2016
Oregon House District 19, Salem, Aumsville, Turner
There are only two candidates in this race, incumbent Representative Jodi Hack, Republican, and Larry Trott, Democrat. 
1. Jodi L. Hack (R), of Salem.   Rep. Hack is now completing her first term in the Legislature.  She is a third-generation Oregonian, and the owner of a small business.  Her occupational background includes work with the North Santiam School District as communications coordinator, and earlier positions as a business manager and loan officer.  See her campaign website here, and her Legislative website here.
In the 2015-2016 Legislative session, Rep. Jodi Hack stood tall and voted against Senate Bill 932, which gave Oregon Opportunity Grants to illegal aliens.  American citizens will now have to compete against illegal aliens for the limited Oregon State Opportunity Grants for college tuition assistance.
Rep. Hack also voted against House Bill 2177, which requires mandatory voter registration.  Because of the passage of this bill, the state will use drivers’ license data to automatically register voters, making it much more likely that illegal aliens will be voting. 
All Democrats present in both the House and the Senate voted Yes on both bills except Sen. Betsy Johnson.   OFIR appreciates the support of Rep. Hack in voting No on these two harmful bills.
This year, Rep. Hack was selected by the national group, Council of State Governments, to participate in a leadership development program for state government officials.  The program, which she attended in August, fosters exchange of insights and ideas to help state officials shape public policy.  Rep. Hack was the only one this year representing the state of Oregon.
2. Larry J. Trott (D), of Salem.  On his filing paper with Oregon Secretary of State, he gives his occupation as “Security Specialist, Oregon Lottery.”  He is a retired Naval officer who was deployed to the Persian Gulf during the Iran-Iraq War.  
His campaign website contains an Issues section listing these subjects: Video Lottery, Nutrition in School, Governance, and One House Legislature.  No mention of immigration was found on his website, and he is not known to have expressed any views on immigration elsewhere.  It can be assumed he will follow Democratic Party policy supporting benefits for illegal aliens and expanded immigration.
