oath of office during ceremony in House chamber
Salem, Ore. – Newly appointed State Representative Raquel Moore-Green (R-Salem) was administered the oath of office by Justice Meagan Flynn of the Oregon Supreme Court in the House Chamber.
“It was an honor and privilege to take the oath of office today in the historic House chamber, surrounded by my family, friends, and constituents,” said Rep. Moore-Green. “I am excited to have this opportunity to serve the people of House District 19 as their State Representative. My staff and I will hit the ground running and we look forward to getting to work on behalf of my constituents. Today, I wish to thank the Precinct Committee Persons who nominated me, and the Marion County Commissioners who unanimously appointed me to this office earlier this week. I will do everything in my power to be worthy of their trust.”
Prior to being appointed to office, Representative Moore-Green dedicated herself to public service and non-profit work for many years. She is a former legislative staffer for then-Representative Kevin Cameron (R-Salem) and the late Senator Jackie Winters (R-Salem). Rep. Moore-Green worked in development for the YWCA of Salem and prior to that in fundraising for the United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley. She is the owner of a consulting company.
Rep Moore-Green and her husband James Green have lived in the Salem area for 24 years. Together they have 3 adult children, and ten grandchildren.
“Raquel’s background as a small business owner, her time working as a legislative staffer, and her leadership and non-profit service in her community will make her a great addition to the Legislature,” said House Republican Leader Carl Wilson (R-Grants Pass). “House Republicans are thrilled to welcome her to our caucus and look forward to serving alongside her.”
