ABOUT THE CANDIDATES
Raul Marquez is running for Zone 2
In January 2018, Raul Marquez, then a McKay High School senior and United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley board member, presented a Leadership Project to the board: develop a teen homeless shelter.
United Way took action by developing a fundraising plan, sourcing a building for the proposed shelter, and engaging Mid-Valley Community Action Agency as the service provider who would run the home. The board of directors supported this effort by granting the project with the initial $100,000 to kick it off.
Hundreds of community members, as well as the Oregon Legislature, helped to assure that Taylor’s House became a reality and it opened in the Fall of 2018.
Raul Marquez is an everyday hero who spearheaded the project with a passionate plea.
Raul is a currently student at Willamette University and has siblings still attending schools in the SKSD. He has been endorsed by PCUN, which is seeking volunteers to help canvass on Saturday, March 23rd.
David Salinas is running for Zone 4
“My parents were migrant farm workers in Jefferson, Oregon. One day, my father was in an accident at work, which left his disabled for the rest of his life, so resources became even more scarce.
When I became a father, my life changed. My kids became my priority and my upbringing became a big factor in me trying to give my kids the things I never had as a child. I am an active parent: I’d do the little things like chaperone field trips and attend events.
I realized disparities were present when I made the choice to join the Salem/Keizer Boundary Committee. I knew it was important for me to be there because I wanted to ensure there was a voice for equity.”
