A native of Astoria, Floyd For Astoria started getting involved in community efforts in his teens. Throughout high school, he spent plenty of time volunteering with charities and even with neighborhood clean ups, the Oregon Green Guard, and Boy Scouts of America. Choosing to attend the Local State Universities, Floyd For Astoria graduated with a Bachelor's in Finance at Oregon State University.
Returning home after the Army, he consulted local engineering firms, railroad companies, fiber optic communication companies and he redeveloped historic properties. For the last seventeen years he has worked managing as the director for his family companies, Pier39-Astoria, a few nonprofits dedicated to helping historical icons succeed in education and business.
His decision to run for office and seek a seat on the city council comes from his fellow Astorians wanting to make a difference in how Astorian's voices are heard. His love for the community is what drives him and his background is what makes him a good choice for city council. However, Floyd looks at serving the public as an honor, civic duty and not a career.
One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. – Plato
