Senate District 18

A slice of the southwest Portland metropolitan area, Senate District 18 includes the communities of King City, Tigard, Metzger, and Southwest Portland.  It includes parts of both Multnomah and Washington counties and is home to many companies and businesses that serve as the backbone of Oregon’s economy.  Portland State University and Portland Community College’s Sylvania campus provide enriching higher education opportunities in the district, and many of Oregon’s top-rated schools can also be found in SD 18.  Oregon’s roots can also be traced back to the historic areas of the district in  Old Town and downtown Portland.  Senator Burdick is a native of Portland.
