Election Date: August 1, 2012



About the Candidate: 

Steven Cody Reynolds, like many transplanted Oregonians, hails from the State of Hawaii, via California. At the age of 18 Steven moved to Portland in order to help his sister with her son. Steven’s desire to serve led him to an enlistment in the Army Infantry in 1997 where he served honorably with the 101st Airborne Division. In 1998 he was given the opportunity to attend West Point and in 1999 was accepted into the corps of cadets. After four grueling years he graduated from West Point and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Air Defense Artillery. In 2004, during training, he sustained an injury that ended his military career leading to a medical separation with an Honorable Discharge. His post-military experience entails time as branch manager of a retail mortgage provider, volunteer teacher in China, and several, ongoing entrepreneurial efforts. Cody writes, “I am a fiscally conservative, socially progressive, civil libertarian. I care about eliminating the excesses of our government, fostering innovation and commerce, and strengthening the programs that protect our most vulnerable citizens. I care that our government is encroaching upon our liberty through legislation and mandate while edging away from the covenants established by our Constitution.
