    COMMITTED TO COMMUNICATION
    When you first elected me to represent you in Salem, I promised to keep strong lines of communication open with district residents. 24 Constituent Coffees, five Town Halls, many meetings with neighborhood associations, dozens of biweekly email newsletters later, I remain committed to keeping you informed and seeking your feedback whenever possible. If you’re having any problems with state agencies, my office is always there to help.

    FIGHTING FOR AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE
    As a member of the House Health Care Committee, I pushed for access to quality, affordable health care for 80,000 low-income children. I will keep fighting to rein in the cost of insurance, shift our focus toward preventive medicine, and train the health care professionals that we need.

    STRENGTHENING PUBLIC EDUCATION
    I know first-hand how public education can transform lives and build communities—but I also see many frustrations. I have fought in the Legislature to maintain a strong, quality public school system, from pre-K through higher education and job training.

    WATCHING OUT FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT
    Climate change remains the greatest threat to our planet, and I will never stop advocating for legislation that reduces greenhouse gas emissions while creating more clean technology jobs.

    ADVOCATING FOR ALL OREGONIANS
    I will continue to demand fairness and opportunity for all Oregonians. I will continue to strengthen programs that allow seniors and people with disabilities to live independently at home while receiving the care they need.
