New Commissioner for Fish and Wildlife Commission

February 9, 2010


SALEM, Ore. –The Oregon Senate confirmed yesterday the appointment of Robert “Bob” Webber to represent Oregon’s 4th congressional district on the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission.

Webber, of Port Orford, will replace Zane Smith who has served on the Commission since 2002. Webber will begin his duties at the Commission's March 12 meeting in Salem. 

“Bob Webber will be a great fit for the Fish and Wildlife Commission,” said Marla Rae, chair, Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission.  “As an avid hunter and angler, I know he will work hard to protect Oregon’s fishing and hunting heritage and natural resources.”

Webber is an attorney and partner with a law firm in Medford. However, since 2009, he has been working as a special deputy with the Curry County District Attorney office prosecuting wildlife cases.  He is a member of several hunting and fishing organizations and has previously participated on various Department of Fish and Wildlife task forces and committees.

Webber believes he will bring a passionate hunter’s and fisherman’s perspective to the Commission, and having lived in southwestern Oregon for more than 30 years, understands landowner concerns. 

“I look forward to working with stakeholders, fellow commissioners and the hard working staff of ODFW on the complex and important issues facing the Commission,” said Webber.

The seven-member Commission sets fish and wildlife policies for Oregon and oversees the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
