Alberto Enriquez


A former journalist for the Medford-based Mail Tribune, Enriquez decided to run after watching Republicans walk out on Cap and Trade negotiations. This walkout, he notes, resulted in Medford losing out on $4.5 million in state funding for public projects. In November, he’ll take on Republican incumbent Kim Wallan and look to bring greater diversity to the state house and represent the growing Latinx community Southern Oregon district.
