Camas candidate for U.S. Congress to host town hall

Camas resident Earl Bowerman, a Republican candidate running for Washington’s 3rd Congressional District, will host an in-person town hall from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m., Tuesday, April 24, at Clark College’s Columbia Tech Center, 18700 S.E. Mill Plain Blvd., Room A, Vancouver.

“The issues before Congress require skills in understanding fiscal responsibility,” Bowerman said in a press release announcing his candidacy. “I have those skills, and also the skills to persevere for impact that our district deserves, such as avoiding Oregon’s tolling of our bridges and highways.”

Bowerman moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2009, after a more than 25-year career as a faculty member at California State University, Fresno. His wife, Karen Dill, is a former Lake Oswego, Oregon, city council member. Bowerman said he looks forward to hosting in-person town halls and meeting with the constituents of the 3rd Congressional District.

“Together with citizens, I consistently employ principles to maintain conservative values for reduced spending and lower taxes, which leads to less government,” Bowerman said.
