Serving as your State Representative is a privilege. I promise to take this responsibility seriously. Because I want to stay independent in order to best represent your family's interests, I am not accepting money from Political Action Committees or lobbying groups.

I have more than a decade of experience with issues that affect all Oregonians, such as energy policy and the state budget. My work at Metro on our region's livability has given me experience with local issues and prepared me to be an effective State Representative for our district.

I pledge to be straight forward with you, drawing on my experience and professional judgment to do what is right for our friends, neighbors and families.

With your help, I pledge to:


John Kitzhaber, MD
Oregon Governor 1995-2003

Hardy Myers
Oregon Attorney General

Rex Burkholder
Metro Councilor

Patricia McCaig
Former Metro Councilor

Mark Hass
Oregon State Senator

Sam Adams
Portland City Commissioner

David Bragdon

Rod Park

Phil Keisling
