City where I live: Washington County

Skills: I worked my way through community college, college, and law school. I started my career as a consumer advocate. I am fighting for the health of our community, our children’s future, and economic relief for families and small businesses.

3 things I will do if I win:

Icon: A person uses a shovel while another person sits working at a computer. The label reads "Jobs."1. We need an economy that works for everyone. To help Oregonians during COVID and after, I support infrastructure investments, workforce training, affordable housing, unemployment, direct payments, and help for small businesses.

Icon: A pencil, an apple, and a chalkboard with "ABC" written on it, and the label "K - 12."2. All students deserve an excellent public education. I will continue to work for affordable childcare, high quality early childhood education, fully funding IDEA, well-rounded K-12 education, reducing high-stakes testing, and debt-free college.

Icon: An image of the earth, with waves radiating from it. 3. We must protect our planet for future generations. I helped write a Climate Action Plan that will reduce carbon emissions, invest in renewable energy, protect our ocean, and create millions of new good-paying jobs.
