Working to Get Oregon Back on Track!

As your representative, Nancy will take on issues important to our community.


Nancy understands that quality education opportunities at all levels are essential to the future of Oregon. Nancy will work to provide full funding for our schools, colleges and universities and increase our investment in workforce development and vocational/technical training programs.
