Hello! My name is Ron Noble, and I am honored to serve as your House District 24 Representative at the Oregon State Capitol. Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit more about me.
I have lived in the Willamette Valley for over 44 years, and have been married to my beautiful wife Sue for 35 years. I am father to three grown sons and one daughter, and I am grandfather to five wonderful baby girls and one baby boy. As Sue and I have spent our lives and raised our family in the Willamette Valley, we could not be more grateful for the love and support of all of our friends, family and neighbors in the community that we get to be a part of.
Within the district, I am known for my involvement in my local church, as a volunteer coach for our local sports programs, and participation in a variety of community groups and events. I have also been known for my role as President of the Oregon Association Chiefs of Police in 2013-2014, and as a founding Board Member of Crisis Chaplaincy Services, a non-profit providing compassion in the midst of crisis throughout several Oregon counties.
I served as the Chief of Police for the City of McMinnville from 2006 to 2014. In this position I led a team of over 50 employees, support staff, volunteers and technicians, and oversaw and implemented a $7 million budget. Working with our partners in the community, we developed new programs including the completion of a new, state of the art public safety facility, implementation of a motorcycle traffic program, development of a tactical support team, received Law Enforcement Accreditation through the Oregon Accreditation Alliance and much more.
After my time with the Police Department, I had the opportunity to serve as the Director of Campus Public Safety for Linfield College from 2014 to 2018. In my time there, I had the great pleasure of building relationships and working with students and faculty alike to problem solve and develop new strategies for helping Linfield to become a safer environment for students, faculty and staff.
My community involvement, combined with my experience and dedication in serving the residents of McMinnville and Yamhill County have provided me with a unique understanding of our community’s issues and the importance of strong representation in Salem. I have the experience of one legislative term under my belt, with the hope and anticipation of many more. I believe that I have the understanding and skills that will bring people together to work toward collaborative solutions that will benefit the citizens of Oregon and the communities of Carlton, Dundee, Hillsboro, Lafayette, McMinnville and Yamhill.
