STANDING UP FOR US
As a consumer protection attorney, Suzanne helped stop unscrupulous mortgage brokers whose deceptions forced families to declare bankruptcy or lose their homes. When funding problems threatened local schools, Suzanne helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for innovative classroom and after-school opportunities as a Board Member of the Beaverton Education Foundation.
Suzanne knows that we can accomplish a great deal if we're willing to take a stand for what really matters.
STABLE FUNDING FOR SCHOOLS
"Time after time, when our local schools needed help Suzanne stepped forward. I'm confident she'll keep working hard for us as our next State Representative." -Priscilla Turner, Member, Beaverton School Board
Suzanne is committed to adequate, stable, and equitable school funding and supports establishing a Rainy Day Fund for the future.
LOWER HEALTHCARE COSTS
"Suzanne Bonamici's plan for affordable health coverage is just what we need to reduce the financial strain on local businesses and families." - David S. Menashe, M.D.
Suzanne supports expanding Oregon's Prescription Drug Purchasing Pool so that more Oregonians will be eligible for lower cost prescriptions.
"Suzanne Bonamici has a track record of results in our community. I know she'll keep standing up for us on the things that matter, like improving our schools and making healthcare more affordable." -Representative Brad Avakian
