Mayor Jason Snider announced last month that he is running for a seat on the Washington County Board of Commissioners in the May 2024 election.
“I am running for county commissioner because District 3 and Washington County need strong, consistent, and effective leadership as the county faces unprecedented budget, transportation, and housing challenges,” Snider said.
Snider said he looks forward to representing the cities of Durham, King City, Sherwood, Tigard, and Tualatin and portions of unincorporated Washington County as a county commissioner. He has already been endorsed by State Rep. Courtney Neron (D-Wilsonville), former Sherwood Mayor Keith Mays, former King City Mayor Ken Gibson, and Tualatin Mayor Frank Bubenik.
Snider was elected to the Tigard City Council in November 2012, served as City Council president from 2015 to 2018, and then as mayor of Tigard from 2019 to 2022. Previously, Snider served as a Tigard Budget Committee chair and as a reserve officer with the Tigard Police Department. He works full-time as a practice director at Kaiser Permanente Northwest.
Washington County Commissioner Roy Rogers, who currently represents District 3, recently confirmed that he will not seek re-election in 2024.
