Oregon Rep. Peter Buckley Retires

For years, he's been one of the major shapers of the budget for state government in Oregon, a budget affecting millions of people and guiding billions of dollars. 

During that time, he has earned less than $30,000 a year from being a state legislator. 

That's not the only reason Rep. Peter Buckley recently announced his retirement from the legislature with the 2016 election. 

Buckley represents a diverse district from the California line to Medford, including Ashland liberals and rural conservatives.  He shares his thoughts on governing, and ceasing to govern, in a solo interview.
