    Bruce Vincent

    Planning Consultant

    "As a planning consultant, I have known both Johns for at least 25 years as colleagues in the land development field. John Velez and John Bacon have referred many projects to me. John Velez, over his many years, has a full knowledge of the vagaries and frustrations of obtaining Planning permission for development projects. I share those frustrations, and this state needs more people like John who can, with other like-minded representatives, continue to push for more sensible changes to land use regulations in this state. Best of luck on your campaign John!"

    Tanya Haddock

    “I have known John for 30 years and he is a kind, considerate, and generous man whom is honest, hardworking, dedicated, focused, and has integrity. We desperately need him in the senate. He will do all within his power to fulfill his promises, and bring power back to the people, where it should be! Please give him a chance to make a true difference! Vote for him, and spread the word! “

    "I have known and worked with John for almost a decade. I highly recommend him for this position. Just one of John’s strengths is that he is a relentless problem solver. He pursues a solution until an agreement is reached. He brings people together to achieve a win- win. He has excellent leadership skills and always comes from a position of inclusivity."

    Theresa Hammell

    Local Resident

    I have known John for 30+ years and he is hands down one of the most hard working, generous, selfless and successful people I know. His success is not only financial and professional but it is also in his ability to serve others whether family, friends, community or beyond. John is a person who doesn’t back down from a challenge, he rather, dives in both feet with a huge heart and shows up for anyone in need. Oregon would be blessed to have him as a leader and advocate!


    Renee Brouse

    I appreciate John's quiet but active involvement in the community. He asks good questions and searches for answers. He is pro business, supports our Police Officers, and helps tackle tough issues.
