Timothy Sutherland, Nancy Nathanson compete in District 13 race

State Rep. Nancy Nathanson, a Democrat from Eugene, will face Republican challenger Timothy “Sean” Sutherland for the 13th District in the Nov. 8 general election.

The district includes downtown Eugene and northeast of River Road and west of Interstate 5.

Nathanson has held this position since 2007 and lives in Eugene with her husband. Prior to his tenure, Nathanson worked in academic libraries for over 30 years.

Sutherland moved to Eugene from Texas 12 years ago to be closer to her 13-year-old son and works as a sales director in a large insurance market.

He said in a phone interview that Nathanson wants to work for Oregonians and help communities in areas such as addressing real issues with homelessness, public safety and education.

“It’s really rewarding to realize that you can make a difference in the life of one person or thousands of people through your actions,” Nathanson said.

One bill he is most proud of is House Bill 2832 in 2015, which would curb predatory financial practices and fraudulent charges on college student debit cards. Other things she mentioned are increased protections for trailer park residents – HB 3016 in 2015 – and senior citizens in assisted living facilities – HB 3262 in 2017.
