COMMUNITY LEADER, COMMUNITY CENTERED

Dear Neighbors:

As a community leader, I believe it is time for us to stand together. My experiences have taught me the skills necessary to move Oregon forward. I am committed to serving you and will protect our community’s values.

I am running for House District 19 because I want to ensure that Oregon grows in alignment with our community needs. This means focusing on what matters most in the work you—our hard working families, our farmers, and small business owners—do.

Accountable and Transparent Government: We need to hold state leaders accountable and ensure that decisions improve the health and wellness of our communities.

Education Opportunities: Oregon’s high school youth are struggling. We need to ensure that students understand their options after high school graduation – whether it be college, technical career training, or entering the workforce. Providing the necessary resources ensures that our youth will make informed decisions.

Protecting Our Public’s Health: We must provide better protection for our public’s health. Let’s train community members to become community health advocates to reduce health disparities through linking community members to much needed health information and services.

Reduce Homelessness: We must implement fair housing practices and ensure that there are easier pathways to homeownership. The focus should be on successful evidence-based programs that reduce homelessness while ensuring that everyone has a roof over their head.

On May 19, you will have the opportunity to vote and elect a proven leader with community-centered experience.

It would be my honor to serve you.
