SALEM – Oregon House Majority Leader Jennifer Williamson released the following statement welcoming Courtney Neron as the Democratic candidate for House District 26. Neron was selected to replace Ryan Spiker, who dropped out of the race in June, today at a convention of House District 26 precinct committee persons.

“I am excited to welcome Courtney to this race. As an educator and mother, she knows the importance of a great public education and quality, affordable health care. I know Courtney is ready to hit the ground running and fight for a better future for everyone.

“She presents a real choice for the voters and offers an opportunity for the people of House District 26 to have a representative in Salem who is beholden to them, not to the extremists of his party.

“I want to thank Ryan Spiker for the campaign he ran and the support he has provided in seeking a replacement candidate on the ballot. I look forward to seeing him continue to serve his community. I also want to thank Shawn Goodpaster for stepping forward and being willing to throw his hat in the ring.”
