    Independent Ideas that Work for Oregon

    Margaret Doherty is making it her business to protect jobs.

    As a small business owner, Margaret knows small companies drive our economy. Too often, big banks won’t give them the credit they deserve. That’s why Margaret led bipartisan efforts in Salem for more state loans to small businesses to hire new workers.

    Ensuring Oregon’s public schools make the grade.

    As a former high school teacher and education advocate for over 30 years Margaret understands nothing is more critical than protecting K-12 schools. To strengthen our economy, she will also safeguard community colleges and universities because she knows they provide the training Oregonians need.

    Margaret knows the healthcare crisis is too real for too many Oregonians.

    Margaret will work tirelessly for solutions bringing affordable, quality coverage to every Oregonian. She will stand up to the insurance lobby so we can have access to the preventative care we deserve.

    Putting transportation solutions on the fast track.

    Margaret understands our economy will come to a screeching halt if roads stay clogged with traffic. That’s why she is working to develop realistic options to ease gridlock and supports smart mass transit to make our region a great place for many generations.

    She’s all about people. Not politics.

    “Too many elected officials play politics with our future. We need independent thinkers with new ideas. I’ll reach across the aisle to find bipartisan solutions for our families, because for me, it’s about making our community a better place to live”
