Sara Gelser. Protecting what's best about Oregon.
Protecting Oregon's people. Sara Gelser knows that Oregon's greatest resource is its people. She will support economic development that creates good jobs and promotes healthy businesses. She will fight to adequately fund critical human service programs that help Oregonians get back on their feet and protect our most vulnerable citizens.
Fighting for a healthy Oregon. Sara Gelser knows health care is a basic right, not a privilege. Sara is helping lead the effort to ensure all Oregon children have access to quality care for a healthy start in life, and is working to develop strategies to control the cost of care for all Oregonians.
Investing in Oregon's future. As a member of the Corvallis School Board, Sara Gelser has been a passionate voice for all children.

In the legislature, Sara will be an articulate voice for a rigorous and relevant education system accessible to all Oregonians, from preschool through graduate school.
Preserving Oregon's landscapes. Sara Gelser knows Oregon's rivers, forests, farms and natural resources are essential to our economy and quality of life. She will fight for clean air and water and insist on responsible, sustainable planning for Oregon's future.
Safeguarding the basic rights of all Oregonians. Sara Gelser will fight for legislation that protects the rights and dignity of every citizen. Sara will strongly oppose any effort to roll back women's access to reproductive health care services.
