Oregon is a very special place. As a 4th-generation Oregonian, this state has made me who I am—someone who understands hard work and determination, who values our children, cares about our communities, and believes in stewardship of our environment.
I have worked for 20 years to protect and promote Oregon values: a vibrant economy that is built on family wage jobs, a strong education system for early childhood through post-secondary, a healthcare system that focuses on the patient, and access to all reproductive health care services.
Even in difficult economic times, Oregonians know how to work together, solve problems, and invest in what matters.
Together, we can ensure a bright future for Oregon.
