Nyssa – Mark Stringer, a candidate for the Oregon District 30 Senate seat, was arrested last Thursday in Nyssa on a misdemeanor warrant for failure to appear in court.

According to the Nyssa Police Department, Stringer told police he believed his lawyer had resolved a court date issue.

Police said the warrant was in effect, and they arrested Stringer and took him to the Malheur County Jail in Vale. He later posted bail and was released.

Stringer won the Democratic primary to face incumbent Ted Ferrioli, R-John Day, for the District 30 slot in November.
