PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Jamie McLeod-Skinner is running for Oregon’s 5th Congressional District, challenging Congressman Kurt Schrade in the newly redrawn district.

The district includes parts of Clackamas, Multnomah, Deschutes, Linn, Benton, Marion and Jefferson counties.

McLeod-Skinner, a Democrat from Central Oregon, has worked as an attorney, emergency response coordinator and Education Service District board member in the past. While working as an interim city manager in Talent, she led the disaster recovery team amid the devastating wildfire season.
