Re-elect Nancy Nathanson for Results, not Gridlock!

In recognition of her budgetary expertise, Nancy was named Vice-Chair of the Ways & Means Committee and serves on the Emergency Board. Nancy helped establish Oregon's first "rainy day" savings fund.

Standing up for Seniors, Children and Families

Nancy worked around the clock to deliver better in-home care for seniors and cheaper prescription drugs for thousands. She shed light on health care costs, and assisted foster children and their families.

A Stronger Lane County Economy

Recognizing the importance of public safety and the environment, Nancy delivered state dollars to enhance the Willamette River corridor and ensure proper security preparations for the hugely successful Eugene 08 Olympic Trials.

Protecting What's Important to Us

Nancy took action when our community needed her help in preventing crime. She helped shape a budget leading to 24/7 state police coverage on our highways, increased funding for drug courts and mandated treatment for offenders.

A Strong Voice

Nancy provided leadership in improving protections for mobile home residents and is pressing for solutions to the impending county funding crisis.

Investing in Our Future

Nancy is currently helping to design a new legislative process to adequately fund kindergarten through higher education. She champions workforce development and pushes for increased state support for Lane and other community colleges.

"It has been an honor serving you in Salem. I look forward to continuing my work making health care more affordable, improving funding for education, and fighting for good jobs for Oregonians."
