  Earl Blumenauer

Earl Blumenauer was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and has been a life-long resident of Oregon's 3rd Congressional District. He is a graduate of Centennial High School and received an undergraduate degree from Lewis & Clark College and a law degree from the Northwestern School of Law at Lewis & Clark College.

As a college student, Earl was politically active and organized a campaign to lower Oregon's voting age to eighteen. While still a student, he was elected to the Oregon Legislature, winning every precinct in his district. After three terms in the Oregon House of Representatives, including two terms chairing the Revenue and School Finance Committee, Earl was elected in 1978 to the Multnomah County Commission, where he served two terms. In 1986, he was elected to Portland's City Council and served as the Commissioner of Public Works. As a local official, Earl developed a national reputation for his advocacy of public transportation, land use planning, protection of the environment, and school funding. Earl's valuable work helped Portland become one of the nation's most livable cities.

Since his election to Congress in 1996, Earl has focused his efforts on making the federal government an effective partner in creating livable communities. He founded the Livable Communities Task Force and the bi-partisan Bicycle Caucus, and is an active member of the House Sustainable Development Caucus. He serves on the committees on International Relations and Transportation and Infrastructure. Earl is consistently recognized throughout the country for his leadership with and advocacy of the national livable communities movement. His work has won him numerous national awards.

While serving in Congress, Earl has remained an Oregon leader and is committed to making a difference here. He spends as much time in Portland as in Washington, returning nearly every weekend. His work in Congress has produced many benefits for Oregonians including protections for the Little Sandy Watershed, and helping provide critical transportation funding.  . . . short bio
