familyA Steadfast Leader For A Prosperous Oregon

On a visit to a constituent, Representative Sherrie Sprenger reached down and ruffled the head of the unfriendly watchdog, then went boldly inside the shop where she could see the constituent working. She stuck out her hand with a smile and introduced herself.

Sherrie Sprenger loves to meet new people and isn’t afraid to reach out to them on their turf or address conflict head-on when there is something that needs resolution.

She currently serves as Vice-Chair of the House Education Committee, and she is also on the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Education. Rep. Sprenger is an advocate for jobs, the economy, and common sense “live within your means” government budgeting. She works to bring common sense to each discussion in the legislature.

As a rural Deputy Sheriff in both Benton and Grant counties, Sherrie Sprenger learned how to think on her feet, make tough decisions and maintain integrity in all situations. Sherrie applies these lessons and embraces the challenges she faces today as a State Representative. Sherrie is a servant leader talkingwith a deep devotion to the communities she represents. For five years she has invested in her community as a member and chair of the Lebanon School Board. Even when tensions grew with the local school board, Sherrie Sprenger was able to rise above it and stay focused on successfully educating kids by requiring accountable spending of tax dollars and by providing educational options to parents. As a result, Sherrie was re-elected to her position on the school board, and her peers elected her to serve as Chair. During her tenure on the school board, Sherrie served on the Legislative Policy Committee for the Oregon School Boards Association.

Representative Sprenger understands the values and issues that are important to the people in her district because she works by their side, listens to their concerns and brings them together to find solutions.

Sherrie grew-up in the Lacomb area, and she and her husband Kyle live there today. They are investing in the community that they love, the place where they chose to raise their son Austin.
