October 2023 Central Committee Meeting

At our October meeting, we are pleased to have guests Will Lathrop and Senator Tim Knopp.


Will Lathrop is an experienced attorney and proven public servant committed to restoring our justice system and rebuilding trust in our government institutions. A sixth-generation Oregonian, Will is deeply invested in the well-being of our state. His experience leading multinational teams and restoring broken justice systems has given him the tools to effectively combat drug trafficking and reduce crime, curb public corruption, and limit bureaucratic overreach.


Senator Tim Knopp is a native Oregonian who has lived in Central Oregon for over 40 years. He and his wife, Melissa, have been married over 34 years and have 4 children and 2 grandkids. His background includes nearly 20 years as a small business owner and community service as a former little league coach and board member of the Bend Chamber of Commerce as well as serving as a current board member of affordable housing non-profit, First Story. Tim is the Executive Vice President of the Central Oregon Builders Association and the Executive Director of Building Partners for Affordable Housing. Tim served in the Legislature from 1999 to 2005 for three terms, including as Oregon House Majority Leader, and helped pass legislation that Constitutionally protected taxpayer refunds and billions of dollars have been returned to taxpayers. He has also helped pass many other bills protecting taxpayers and helping small businesses.
