My name is Austin Folnagy, I am a Business and Employment Specialist for 10 years with the Oregon Employment Department. In that time period and during my college years I was involved in higher education, workforce development, and economic development leadership both in North Idaho and Southern Oregon.

Which is why I have served on economic councils, community college board, education service districts, and labor union work groups in create a more prosperous and equitable workforce dynamics.
