Representative Larry Galizo resigns for University job

State Representative Larry Galizio has resigned to take up a job with the Oregon University System as an academic planner. This leaves a seat that was not long ago occupied by a Republican, Max Williams before he resigned, open in the fall. This makes the seat competitive.

Stay tuned.

    Oh teacher Larry is off to bigger things for the OEA.

    Mr. Swell guy Larry was one of the sponsors of a bill that would have required all initiatvies to go through a two year legsilative review prior to the ballot.

    Almost every seat will be competitive.

    (continuing post #2 above) – and that, I believe, is why Galizio found a paying job instead of thinking about re-election. I think some of the other members who have sought greener pastures might be thinking the same thing.

      The liberals have given their necks to the GOP, lets see if the GOP is up to the task of slicing it open.

    This guy is where he belongs. In a do-nothing job.
    What can he possibly plan? What academics are being taught?
    What will they do without him?
    I feel sorry for this guy.

    I found the info below. Sounds like it might be a worthwhile endeavor.

    ‘Higher education Chancellor George Pernsteiner confirmed that Galizio will take a job as an “academic planner” working to coordinate university programs with community colleges. …

    He said his job would be to work for “a better alignment between community colleges and the University system. We’re tying to get more under-served Oregonians into post-secondary education.” ‘

      Anything that would get kids to go to community college the first two years instead of the overpriced party schools would be a plus. Sadly, Gal will not do this.

        You obviously have it in for the 4-year colleges. Do you think the students should be coerced to go to the CCs?

        You’re obviously not running for the votes of the college educated.

    I knew Larry before he got into politics. He is a real piece of work. Knowing some of the stuff in his personal life, I would not trust him with anything. Good Riddance.
