Meet Chuck

Chuck Thomsen was a proud member of the “Oregon 11” – the eleven Republican state senators who stood up to Kate Brown and Oregon Democrats to stop the horrible job destroying Cap and Trade Bill from becoming law.

About Chuck Thomsen

Chuck Thomsen was first elected to the Oregon Senate in 2010. He has served tirelessly ever since, representing much of East Multnomah, Clackamas, and Hood River Counties. As a pear grower and former 16-year county commissioner, Thomsen brings a much-needed perspective to Salem.

Chuck Thomsen graduated from Hood River High School in 1975, and Willamette University in 1979 (BA Political Science, Economics).

He and his wife, Kristi, live on the family farm in Hood River. They raised two daughters, Meagan and Mallory; have a son-in-law, David; and granddaughter, Aven.

Chuck recently retired from the Pine Grove Volunteer Fire Department after 33 years of service. He was a longtime youth athletics coach, referee, and frequent volunteer throughout the Community.

Chuck was appointed to the Hood River Planning Commission in 1990 for four years. He then served on the Hood River County Commission for 16 years, developing a nonpartisan, problem-solving approach to budgets and planning.

Chuck quickly earned the reputation of an effective problem solver and hard worker. He freely hands out his cell phone number and encourages any constituent to contact him with ideas or concerns they have.

Stop Radical Socialists!

With Chuck Thomsen out of the way, Bernie Sanders & Kate Brown type socialists will force their radical agenda on us – don’t let this happen!
