Skills: For the past ten years, I’ve been a State Representative. I have a degree in Politics and Economics from Willamette and a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Washington. I worked at Nike and for the US Treasury Secretary.

3 things I will do if I win:

Icon: A diploma, a graduation cap and a book, with the label "College."2. The Oregon College Savings Plan is a great tool for helping families save for college. I will make sure this program is protected so that more people can afford to attend college.

As State Treasurer, I’m looking forward to making sure this exciting new plan is successful.
