BIOGRAPHY of Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley *82

Jeff is the son of a millwright and the first in his family to attend college. Born
in the timber town of Myrtle Creek, Oregon, Jeff has spent his career fighting to
increase opportunities for working families. After earning an undergraduate degree
from Stanford and graduate degree in Public Policy at Princeton's Woodrow Wilson
School of Public and International Affairs, Merkley worked as a national security
analyst at the Pentagon and the Congressional Budget Office.

In 1991 Jeff returned to Oregon to lead Portland's Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit
that empowers low-income families through homeownership. Jeff then served as president
of the World Affairs Council in Portland before entering Oregon’s House of Representatives
in 1998. He became Speaker of the House in 2007.

As Oregon's House Speaker, Jeff led the most productive legislative session in decades.
The legislature increased education funding, expanded access to affordable prescription
drugs, passed landmark environmental and energy legislation, established domestic
partnerships, cracked down on predatory payday and title lending, and created Oregon's
first ever Rainy Day fund.

In the U.S. Senate, he fights to create living-wage jobs and to push back on unfair
trade policies that ship Oregon’s jobs overseas. He has worked to make college more
affordable and make retirement more secure for seniors. A true reformer, he led an
historic coalition to fix the broken Senate by breaking up the gridlock, making it
more responsive to the concerns of working families.  COMMITTEE SERVICE: Jeff serves
on the Senate Committees on Appropriations; Environment and Public Works; Budget;
and Foreign Relations.
