PORTLAND - The Republican National Committee recently appointed Bob Tiernan, chairman of the Oregon Republican Party, to the RNC budget committee.

The position came as the result of Tiernan work on the transition team for Michael Steele, the new chairman of the RNC, a Oregon Republican Party news release said.

The RNC also selected Tiernan because of his business background and experience as president and chief operating officer of a multi-million dollar company where he increased efficiency and oversaw 14 consecutive quarters of positive sales, the news release said.
