About Kevin

Kevin Stine has dedicated his career to public service. As a Medford City Councilor, Kevin has been a strong advocate to increase the housing supply, make Medford more business-friendly, and increase openness and transparency in government by being easily accessible and willing to listen.

Kevin was born in Medford to a single mother and grew up in poverty. Wanting to break the cycle, he decided to take the opportunity to join the military. He served aboard submarines in the US Navy and completed 3 deployments, and was stationed in Virginia, Connecticut, and Maine. He was an Electronics Technician and Radioman with a Top Secret clearance, in his 9 years of service.

After receiving an honorable discharge from the military, Kevin came back to Medford and was elected to the City Council in 2014. He attended classes full-time at Southern Oregon University and became the first person in his family to graduate from college.

Kevin has worked at ACCESS for the SSVF program where he helped house homeless veterans, and at Rogue Community College as the Veteran Resource Center Specialist where he assists veterans in attending college. He is a current Navy Reservist, where he is a member of the Funeral Honors Team, and he works at the Medford School District as a substitute teacher. Kevin lives with his wife of 13 years, Casey, and their daughter Riley.
