Tobias Read brings experience working for the U.S. Treasury Secretary, Nike, and a decade as a State Representative. He fought to fund full-day kindergarten and to make it easier for more than a million Oregonians, who don't get a retirement plan from their employer, to save for their retirements. As State Treasurer, Read will focus state leaders on Oregon's future by making it easier to save for college and invest in infrastructure.
Read serves on the Oregon Innovation Council which includes three signature research centers and a roster of industry initiatives that create hundreds of jobs.
He lives in Beaverton with his wife Heidi and their two children.
