    The Oregonian endorses Jennifer

    “We endorse Williamson, who as a lawyer, public employee and lobbyist has developed relationships in the Capitol for years.

    We also think the Legislature would benefit from Williamson’s passionate advocacy for higher education. She is a first-generation college graduate and has lobbied for financial aid and other programs since she was a student at the University of Oregon. Williamson’s understanding of the possible trade-offs between policy areas is a key strength.”

    “…Williamson shows a stronger grasp of more issues and has more political experience. We recommend her for House District 36, the seat being vacated by Mary Nolan.

    Safety and Justice PAC endorses Jennifer

    The Safety and Justice Political Action Committee (PAC) is proud to endorse Jennifer Williamson in Oregon’s upcoming Primary Election. Jennifer is an attorney and public safety reform leader running in the Democratic primary for House District 36 in West Portland.

    Jennifer understands the issues that matter to people who want smart public safety policy. When she worked for the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, she helped guide the work of the Oregon Coalition for Safety and Savings (of which Partnership for Safety and Justice is a member) and supports the work of the Commission on Public Safety.

    Jennifer understands that Oregon can do better when it comes to spending on corrections and supports policy alternatives to our one-size-fits-all incarceration system and the enormous impact it has had on every other segment of our state’s budget.
