                                          Oregon’s many treasures.

                                            The parks around the State Capitol have
                                          long existed. However, Senate Bill 632,
                                          passed in the 2007 legislative session,
                                          officially designated those grounds as the
                                          State Capitol State Park. The legislation
                                          transferred park management responsibil-

     Senator Joanne Verger       Hannon worked for the city of Ashland street department and later as an independent

    Representative Brian Clem    incumbent Republican Lynn Newbry by 37 votes. In 1980, Hannon switched to the
   Representative Matt Wingard   Republican Party, making him one of seven Republicans in the 30-member Senate. In
          Sandra Allen           2003, in an unusual power-sharing agreement, he became co-leader of the Senate.
                                 Hannon ended his legislative career in 2004 when he accepted a seat on the State
