Every day, I’m reminded just how special Oregon is.

We’re pioneers. We’re innovators. We’re fiercely independent. We treasure our natural resources. We protect individual freedoms. We believe in lending a helping hand and giving second chances.

As a 4th generation Oregonian, this state has made me who I am— and I’m honored to be a progressive voice for my neighbors in Portland and lead the House Democrats as the Majority Leader. Together, we can build a better future for our state.

Side by side with my fellow Democrats, I’m fighting hard for a vibrant economy built on family wage jobs, standing up for a strong public education system from early childhood through college, pushing to continue our state’s groundbreaking work to protect the environment, and leading the fight to protect every woman’s right to choose and safeguard the hard-won equal treatment of LGBT Oregonians.

With your ideas and energy, we’re making real progress for all Oregonians. Together, we can make sure our state has a bright future.

Warm Regards,

Kathleen will join us for a Q&A between the 2 films. An Oscar- and Tony-nominated actress and activist, Kathleen Turner serves as chairwoman of @[342294162453301:274:Planned Parenthood] Federation of America’s Board of Advocates. She has testified before Congress on the U.S. family planning program and on the Equity of Prescription Insurance Contraception Coverage Act and remains passionate about changing the social climate in the United States to respect women’s personal health decisions. Her other screen credits include @[112586852087535:274:Body Heat], @[407319942686693:274:Romancing the Stone], @[112941015386868:274:Prizzi's Honor] and @[105768986129545:274:War of the Roses].

PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED During her 25th high school class reunion, middle-aged Peggy Sue (Kathleen Turner) tries to forget her marital problems with husband, Charlie (@[106223992750117:274:Nicholas Cage]), by renewing old friendships. Wondering if she made the right decisions in her life, Peggy Sue gets a chance to try again when, zapped into a time warp, she finds herself a teen-ager back in 1960. Armed with foreknowledge (the scene in which she tells off her algebra teacher is a particular treat), Peggy Sue gets to retrace the steps leading up to her unhappy marriage to high school sweetheart Charlie. Will nerdish Richard Norvik (@[106084256089593:274:Barry Miller]), who always carried a torch for Peggy Sue and whom she knows will become a millionaire computer mogul by 1985, win out over the unreliable Charlie this time? A “small” film from the otherwise profligate Francis Ford Coppola, Peggy Sue Got Married possesses an irresistible charm. The youthful cast is matched in its appeal by such veterans as @[621824107856308:274:Leon Ames], @[105596942807739:274:Maureen O'Sullivan] and @[105531939479884:274:John Carradine]. And yes, that is @[196914760370777:274:Jim Carrey is Here] as Walter Getz. SERIAL MOM Beverly Sutphin (Kathleen Turner) is the perfect suburban housewife and mother. She likes to cook, her home is immaculately clean, she’s always well-groomed and cheerful, and she loves her husband Eugene (@[112565295424662:274:Sam Waterston]) and her two children, Misty (@[840305629343799:274:Ricki Lake]) and Chip (@[104044876300170:274:Matthew Lillard]). There’s just one problem with Beverly: If you do anything to make someone in her family feel bad, you’re dead meat on a stick. While she does a great job of hiding it, Beverly has a vicious and vengeful streak, and when she’s not making obscene prank calls to the neighbors or bribing her garbage men to save embarrassing items from her neighbors’ trash, she’s mowing down whoever would be so rude as to make her husband go into his office on a Saturday, break up with her daughter or suggest that her son watches too many horror movies. Serial Mom captures a comfortable middle ground between Hollywood professionalism and John Waters’ subversive sense of humor, and Kathleen Turner has a field day as the sweet-on-the-outside, evil-on-the-inside Beverly. The supporting cast includes such Waters favorites as @[103996416303654:274:Patty Hearst], @[24213059265:274:Traci Lords], @[104045066297283:274:Mink Stole] and @[107565299265687:274:Susan Lowe]; @[144568223039:274:Joan Rivers] and @[55720163190:274:Suzanne Somers] appear as themselves, and all-female grunge-metal @[103767152996085:274:L7 (band)] plays the all-female grunge-metal band Camel Toe.
