Commissioner Tucker seeks a fifth term

Linn County Commissioner Will Tucker said last week that he will seek a fifth term in office.
He has placed his name on the May 2022 primary ballot.
Tucker, 69, has served on the Board of Commissioners since 2009, although he did not run for office in November 2020, due to family issues. In April 2021 he returned to the board after being appointed to complete the remaining two years remaining on Commissioner John Lindsey’s term of office. Lindsey died in March.
Before becoming a county commissioner, Tucker held several positions with Hewlett-Packard from 1972 to 2001 and was a Realtor from 2003 to 2009.
Tucker and his wife Lynne, live near Waterloo.
He has studied at California Polytechnic State University, the Rochester Institute of Technology and Linn-Benton Community College.
Prior to becoming a county commissioner, Tucker served on the Lacomb School Board and its budget committee, the Linn County Parks Board, Planning Commission and Budget Committee.
He has earned numerous civic awards for his community activities including being honored by the ABC House, CASA and Oregon Veterans Administration, among others.
“It’s a privilege to serve the citizens of Linn County,” Tucker said. “Since I have returned to the Board of Commissioners, I have realized how much I enjoy the work and people tell me how much they appreciate the work I do and the way I do it.”
