This kind of grassroots work is why I am so proud to support him in his race for House District 50. I know he will continue to be a role model for our youth and the next generation of East County leaders.  I look forward to seeing all that he will accomplish as our next Representative. - Lori Stegmann, Multnomah County Commissioner District 4

"Ruiz has more experience: He's been elected twice to the Reynolds School Board, and he currently serves as the community services coordinator for the city of Gresham. He's participated in government from as many angles as CJ McCollum takes jump shots: He's been a crime prevention specialist, an assessment and taxation technician, and an arts board member." - Willamette Week
