State Rep. Dennis Richardson is announcing his candidacy for governor. Richardson is a Central Point Republican.

Elected to his first term in 2002, Richardson is hoping to take on incumbent Gov. John Kitzhaber by emphasizing experience co-chairing Oregon's Ways and Means Committee during the 2011 session. Richardson says he’s worked to restore property rights, improve Oregon's business environment, create family-wage jobs and expand Oregon’s markets abroad.

Outside of Southern Oregon, Richardson is often known for sending waves of emails and for controversial writings, such as when he suggested that he could have prevented the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting if he had been a teacher there with a weapon. Richardson denied that he had been mulling a run for statewide office when he made a public-records request for email addresses to state agencies.

I am a recipient of his periodic emails and have found them to be thoughtful, informative and clear. He cuts through the typical doublespeak and media-speak and gets to the heart of the biggest issues of the day. He would make an excellent governor.

In 1996, after a 17-year career in the destination marketing industry, where I gained national standing as the CEO of the Convention & Visitors Association of Lane County, I was recruited by the founders of a new professional basketball league for women. The American Basketball League (ABL) hoped to leverage the success of the 1996 USA women’s national team at the Atlanta Olympics — much like USA Soccer is now leveraging the U.S. Women’s National Team’s victory in the World Cup. The ABL wanted a team in Portland, and they wanted me to be its general manager.
