Tonight, Democratic Party precinct committee people will gather in North Portland to select three to five candidates for the Senate District 22 seat, which was recently vacated by Senator Margaret Carter.
Those nominees then go to the Multnomah County Commissioners, who appoint the new Senator.
Three of the seven declared candidates have OLCV voting records, some of which are from a while ago and not on OLCV's website.
The candidates who've served in the Legislature, and their scores:
Jo Ann Bowman - lifetime score: 96%
Gary Hansen - lifetime score: 78.5%
Chip Shields - lifetime score: 97.5%
(does not include Rep. Shields' 2009 score which will be released next week)
