Oregon Can Do Better In Creating More Family-Wage Jobs
  • With our state’s high unemployment rate, we must do everything we can do increase the availability of family-wage jobs for all Oregonians.
  • At the very least, we must protect our recent advances in protecting the state’s minimum wage and ensuring regular increases for minimum wage workers.

Oregon Can Do Better In Providing Education for Our Children

  • Oregon’s educational system is making it difficult for our children to learn, despite dedicated teachers and parents.
  • Class sizes are increasing; school years are shortening; budgets are stretched.
  • We must ensure that our schools have stable funding so that Oregon’s school children are recognized for outstanding academic achievement.

Oregon Can Do Better In Providing Access to Quality Health Care for All Oregonians

  • Too many Oregonians Are uninsured and have no access to health care.
  • Too many Oregon senior citizens cannot afford to pay for expensive medications.
  • Even the Oregon Health Plan doesn’t provide enough care for enough people.
  • Every Oregonian must have quality health care when they need it, no matter who they are.

“I look forward to having a conversation with the voters of Troutdale, Wood Village, Fairview and Gresham to come up with a future we all want for Oregon.”
