Chrissy Reitz for State Senate

Chrissy for Oregon


About Chrissy

Chrissy Reitz is a former Neonatal Intensive Care nurse, a school board member, a mom and an active community volunteer. As a parent and school board member, Chrissy knows that education is the key to opportunity and she’s running for State Senate to make sure our public schools have the resources they need.

As chair of the Hood River School Board, Chrissy has championed policies to make sure school funding goes to the classroom so we can hire more teachers and expand access to career and technical education. An active community volunteer, Chrissy founded the Gorge Kids Triathlon, an annual event that partners with local businesses to bring more than 300 kids and their families to the Hood River Waterfront to swim, bike, and run to raise money for physical education classes in local public schools.

Chrissy earned a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from the University of Colorado in Boulder and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the University of Kansas School of Nursing. She and her husband Max live in Hood River with their two school-age children, Joe and Jill.
