MEET BRENT BARKER
NEW LEADERSHIP DELIVERING RESULTS FOR OUR STATE
My late graduate school advisor Dr. Charles Scott would say - “Brent Barker has the highest social value system witnessed throughout my career in higher learning.” Friends often nickname me “the Congressman” as a person with ideas and more importantly solutions to address the issues facing our state. My long-term goal has always been a level of experience and education commensurate with the mission of government and community service. My philosophy is to be educated and disciplined in the art of being empathic to the interests of Oregon taxpayers, citizenry and always concerned to the longer-term interests of society. Graduate of Aloha High School have earned a Bachelor of Science in Administration and a Master of Arts at California State University. My graduate education continues at Pepperdine University Caruso School of Law with an emphasis in Dispute Resolution. Education is a lifelong pursuit and Pepperdine University is a school that offers the highest principles of professional, ethical, and moral responsibility that mostly align with my value system.
