Local business man Darin Harbick begins his run for United States Senate
MCKENZIE RIVER, OR — Darin Harbick, born and raised in Lane County, is a multi-business owner, conservative-family man and now seeks to use his experience to work for the citizens of Oregon.
Mr. Harbick served 14 years on the McKenzie School Board, 15 years on the Chamber of Commerce Board and 3 years on Travel Lane County. At the same time, he owned and operated his businesses and served his local community. He coached a girls’ high school basketball team to State Championship. He also coached women’s basketball at a private college in Eugene.
“After receiving encouragement from family and friends, community and church, I made this decision,” Harbick said. “I am asking Oregonians to join me in leading a new and different path for Oregon.”
He has experienced first-hand the obstacles of building a business from the ground up and wants to help those Oregonians who have aspirations of owning a business. At one time Mr. Harbick operated five businesses and managed over 100 employees. He also owns and drives a log truck like his father before him.
From his fourteen years of experience on the school board he understands budget, law, and most importantly how to support parents and listen carefully to their concerns about their children’s education.
Darin Harbick is not one to see a problem and hope somebody else does something. He will get involved to help bring the change and will support and gather others to contribute. When he learned about the need in Oregon to help those with mental health problems, opioid addiction, and homelessness he and his wife, Kail, began a five-bed recovery center for those who are suffering.
Mr. Harbick will tour across the state and meet with entrepreneurs, educators, and mental health leaders to hear their needs and gain their support. To learn more about Darin Harbick and his campaign, visit www.facebook.com/HarbickForGovernor
