Bold. Progressive. Leadership.
"If you're like me, you're frustrated with politics as usual.
We're stuck in a war for oil that has cost thousands of lives and
wasted billions of dollars. Ethics scandals grow, but
corporations keep buying access and selling out regular people.
I'm running for State Representative because
it's time for bold, progressive leadership for a change.
I'd be honored to have your vote."
A TEACHER AND COMMUNITY LEADER
Michael knows we need to build a public education system that allows every Oregon child to move seamlessly from pre-K through college and job training: full-day kindergarten, smaller class sizes, lower college tuition, better workforce preparation. Michael will work to protect Oregon Project Independence, allowing seniors to stay at home while receiving the care they need.
BOLD SOLUTIONS FOR OUR MOST CHALLENGING
Michael will ensure Oregon becomes an economic and environmental leader by increasing investments in renewable energy, enforcing tough measures to reduce greenhouse gases, promoting green development and creating more sustainable industries and family-wage jobs.
A PROUD PROGRESSIVE WHO DOESN'T MAKE EXCUSES
Michael will never stop fighting for Universal Healthcare in Oregon and never back down from supporting a woman's right to choose. He will demand fairness for all Oregonians, regardless of their sexual orientation, race, gender or disability. He will fight for Paid Family Leave laws to help families take care of loved ones when they need it most.
