State Rep. Dan Rayfield of Corvallis has been named a “rising star” by the Oregon League of Conservation Voters.
Rayfield, who is in his first term representing District 8, was recognized by OLCV, a nonpartisan organization that works on environmental issues, for his legislative role in helping to resolve a $30 million budget shortfall for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
“Rep. Rayfield’s leadership on the ODFW budget and the ability to bring people together was tremendous,” said Christy Splitt, external affairs director for the OLCV. “We look forward to his continued advocacy on environmental issues in the future.”
The honor for Rayfield was included in the OLCV”s Environmental Scorecard, which ranked legislators on how they voted on environmental bills during this year’s session. Here is a link to the full report: http://scorecard.olcv.org/2015/.
“I was happy to support a number of environmental wins this session, but there is a lot more we can do to protect our environment moving forward,” Rayfield said.
