ONTARIO - Commissioners from Oregon’s Senate District 30 appointed Rep. Lynn Findley (R-Vale) to fill the senate seat recently held by Cliff Bentz Monday afternoon.

Bentz stepped down from his senate post earlier this month to focus on his campaign for Congress. Bentz intends to replace U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Hood River) who announced in October he did not plan to run for another term.
