Douglas County Commissioner Candidate: Daniel Loomis
DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. - The pool of Douglas County Commissioner candidates continues to grow, and now a veteran with a business background has been introduced into the mix.
Daniel Loomis, who is a retired veteran, has spent his time advocating for student veterans while attending Umpqua Community College. He received a business background while in the military, and now he's running for Douglas County Commissioner.
"It was the right thing to do," said Loomis. "I have the right temperament, I have the right experience. I've handled contract negotiations and multi-million dollar properties."
Loomis has no political experience, but says that voters should look at what a candidate wants to get done in office.
"You might realize that their experience and motivations are exactly suited for what a county commissioner needs to do," said Loomis.
Loomis also hopes to bring more development to Douglas County through the process. If elected, Loomis would fill the vacated seat of former Commissioner Gary Leif, who resigned when he was appointed to the State Legislature.
