Otter Appoints Batt to Takasugi's Seat

Posted By on Fri, Nov 18, 2011 at 5:08 PM

Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter announced today that he has appointed Republican Gayle Batt to fill the seat of Rep. Pat Takasugi, who died earlier this month after a battle with cancer.

Batt, a Wilder resident, had been filling Takasugi's District 10 seat since January 2011, when he was forced to take a leave of absence for medical treatment. During the last legislative session, Batt served on the House Business, State Affairs and Agriculture committees.

She holds a bachelor's degree in agricultural business management from Oregon State University and was Takasugi's campaign manager during his 2008 and 2010 campaigns.
