Redmond to get its first legislator in four decades

State Rep.-elect Jack Zika, R-Redmond

State Rep. Jack Zika, R-Redmond, last week called on the state Legislature and Gov. Kate Brown again to take swift action this week to help Central Oregonians who are suffering from the effects of the coronavirus and its impact on the local and state economy.

The legislature was expected to meet two weeks ago in emergency session to vote on a package of measures including temporarily banning all evictions and foreclosures and expanding grants and loans to small business, but was postponed by the governor.
