Suzanne BonamiciCity where I live: Unincorporated Washington County

Skills: I worked at Legal Aid during community college, college, and law school, and served consumers and small businesses as an attorney and state legislator. I am a proven leader, fighting for economic stability and opportunities for all Oregonians.

3 things I will do if I win:
Icon: A pencil, an apple, and a chalkboard with "ABC" written on it, and the label "K - 12."1. All children deserve an excellent public education. I will continue to reduce high-stakes testing and support well-rounded education; work to make college more affordable; and expand access to early childhood education.

Icon: A person uses a shovel while another person sits working at a computer. The label reads "Jobs."2. Small businesses are critical to our economy. I will continue to advocate for access to capital; support rebuilding our infrastructure; and fight for policies that sustain and create jobs that support Oregon families.

Icon: An image of the earth, with waves radiating from it.3. We must protect our planet for future generations. On the Science Committee, I will support policies that reduce carbon emissions; invest in renewable energy technology; and develop a national energy policy that shifts us away from fossil fuels.
