I've spent the last 20 years working to build a community where all people, all families, and all children can thrive. I’m running for the Multnomah County Commission because the county is where the major issues facing our most vulnerable citizens intersect. And where I can bring my passion and focus on economic, social, and racial justice where it’s needed most - putting opportunity and equity at the forefront of the agenda, the conversation, and the public policy. In the coming months, I look forward to talking with you about your priorities and how we can build a stronger community together.
Housing working families can afford.
Long-term solutions for people experiencing homelessness.
A justice system focused on root causes like addiction, mental illness, and poverty.
Unapologetic support for our immigrant and refugee families.
Educational opportunities with support from cradle to career.
Stable living-wage jobs so people can afford housing and to support themselves and their families.
