Why are you running for office?
I am running for House District 19 because I want to ensure that our state grows in alignment with our community needs. HD19 includes both urban and rural communities Through my work in city council and from my work on boards/commissions, I believe in making policy decisions that are informed and based on evidence-based measures, utilizing an informed decision making process. This means community engagement and getting community feedback. I will not sit at my desk expecting people to come to me – I was elected to represent the people. As such, I will continue to do so.
As state representative, I will be making decisions that impact all Oregonians. To better understand how these decisions affect the community, it is imperative to begin with building relationships. To build relationships requires building trust from the ground up and ensuring that the community’s voices are amplified.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
My priorities are to improve access to health care that is affordable and accessible to everyone; ensuring that we continue to protect the public health of our community; addressing fair access to education; increasing affordable housing options and improving opportunities to become a home buyer; and moving Oregon forward with policies that are well informed and support our community.
What are your hobbies?
Community gardening, reading and writing.
What is the most recent book you read?
Currently reading: “Toward One Oregon” Edited by Michael Hibbard, Ethan Seltzer, Bruce Weber, and Beth Emshoff
