Steve Novick grew up in Cottage Grove, Oregon and graduated from the University of Oregon and Harvard Law School. He spent nine years as an environmental law enforcement lawyer at the U.S. Justice Department, recovering $129 million for taxpayers in the Love Canal toxic waste case, and securing judgments against violators of the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts.
Since returning to Oregon in 1996, Steve has served as policy director in Governor Kulongoski’s 2002 campaign; as communications director for Citizens for Oregon’s Future, a non-profit dedicated to providing reliable information to the public on tax and budget issues; as legislative liaison for Superintendent of Public Instruction Susan Castillo; and as a policy analyst and spokesperson in numerous campaigns against ballot measures that threatened education, healthcare, public safety and services for seniors.
Novick, a former longtime Sellwood-Moreland resident, now lives with his wife, Rachel Novick, and their Corgis, Pumpkin and Checkers, in the Multnomah Village neighborhood.
