About Tim Freeman

My journey of public service started many years ago. I was out of town and the phone rang in the middle of the night. It was my wife. She was crying and explained that the house had caught on fire.  Then she went on to explain that the Roseburg City Fire Department had saved her life, and the lives of my two children.

The fact that the City of Roseburg was there to protect my family when I couldn’t helped me to realize how important public safety and government services are. After hearing that cuts were being made in the fire department, and one of the three fire stations was being closed due to priorities in the city’s budget, I became determined to get involved.

In 2001, I was appointed to the Roseburg Budget Committee where I served as an active member from 2001 through 2008. In 2003 I felt I could do more and was elected to the Roseburg City Council where I served for five years, three of which as Council President.

During my service on City Council, I had the opportunity to be the chair of the League of Oregon Cities General Government Committee, and was also the liaison between the Council and the Douglas County Board of Commissioners.

In 2008, I ran for State Representative for House District 2, where I am now completing my third term. In 2011, we saw an unprecedented even split in the Oregon House. As Republican Whip, I was honored to be a part of the leadership team that crafted bipartisan solutions for the state.

There are many reasons I can cite as to why I am running for this office.  But first and foremost, I am running because Douglas County is my home. I am running because I grew up here. My wife of 29 years and I have raised our children here and we own and manage a small business.  I care what happens to my family and to other families throughout Douglas County.  I want to improve the quality of life for our children and I believe I am uniquely positioned to help make a positive difference.  I would appreciate your vote.

Sincerely,
