She is a problem solver with a deep conviction toward enhancing crime fighting efforts at the local level."

MARK PADGETT, FORMER CHAIRMAN, WASHINGTON COUNTY DEMOCRATIC PARTY

I'll keep an open mind to every point of view and do my best to be a responsible and effective voice for Oregon. I would be honored to earn your vote."
