Republican and Linfield College Public Safety Director Ron Noble defeated Democrat Ken Moore 55 percent to 44 percent to win the Oregon State House of Representative seat for District 24 on Tuesday, according to the Yamhill County Clerk’s election results website.

A native of Oregon for more than 40 years, Noble served previously as the chief of the McMinnville Police before becoming Linfield’s Director of College Public Safety in July 2014 after working for more than 15 years for the Corvallis Police Department as a liaison with Oregon State University’s athletic and Greek Life programs.

Noble wants to focus on making communities safe, growing the local economy, providing better education for youth and working to create a more transparent Oregon government, according to his campaign website.

Living in the district for more than 30 years, Moore is the host of “Local Matters” an ambassador of the McMinnville Chamber of Commerce and is involved in local education, arts and government organizations and non-profits.

Moore said on his campaign website that he would “advocate reason over extremism, bridge political divides, and work cooperatively to enact legislation that will benefit our district.” He also said he would focus on economic and educational opportunities in the community and work to see veterans employed and making health care affordable.

Noble and Moore could not be reached for immediate comment.
