Oregon’s newest lawmaker was sworn in during a ceremony in Salem Tuesday.
State Rep. Vikki Breese-Iverson, from Prineville, replaces Mike Mclane, who resigned his District 55 seat to become a circuit court judge.
Oregon Secretary of State Bev Clarno administered the oath of office in the House chamber.
Breese-Iverson and her husband own several small businesses in Prineville.
She has experience in Salem, having worked for two former lawmakers and several campaigns.
District 55 includes Crook County and parts of Deschutes, Klamath, Lake and Jackson counties.
