Tech owner runs for governor – Medford News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News
Medford high-tech business owner Jessica Gomez announced Tuesday she will run for governor of Oregon in the 2022 Republican primary.
“We need new leadership at a time when we’re recovering from the pandemic,” said Gomez, founder and CEO of Medford-based Rogue Valley Microdevices.
Inconsistent policies and information from the current state leadership have hurt the economy of Oregon during the pandemic, she said.
Gomez, who describes herself as a moderate Republican, was named as executive of the year by the Portland Business Journal in 2020 and is chair of the Oregon Tech Board of Trustees.

Gov. Kate Brown will not be running in 2022 because she will have served the maximum number of terms.
