It is an honor to serve as your State Representative in the Oregon Legislature. In my first term in office, we gave a hand up for working families by passing an historic $7.4 billion schools budget, as well as making a huge boost in higher education funding. We also worked to protect Oregon families by ensuring that workers have access to paid sick leave, a living wage and began work on developing a statewide retirement savings plan that every Oregonian will be able to participate in.
We protected children and our environment by improving air quality through the Clean Fuels Program, and requiring that companies disclose and phase out dangerous chemicals in kid’s toys.
We made valuable investments that will create jobs and improve safety, including $300 million to improve K-12 school buildings, including seismic upgrades, and $90 million for transportation projects statewide.
I’ve lived and served in the community for many years, and whether as police chief, school board member, or at any and every community event I’ve shown that I understand what this community needs to keep growing.
My commitment to Gresham is strong, it's where I have worked, played, and raised my daughter. It’s always been an honor to serve our community, and I need your help to do it in Salem. Please join me in continuing to improve Gresham through keeping our community safe, our schools funded, and creating a pathway to success for all working families in Oregon.
