Thank you for visiting my website.
I ran for State Representative because I believe I can provide the leadership necessary to build a stronger future for all Oregonians. If the past has proven anything, it’s that opportunity for Oregonians continue to be harder to come by.
I have seen my father, a high school music teacher, worry each year whether or not he’ll have a job when the new budget comes out. I’ve personally experienced the skyrocketing costs of higher education and the resulting burden of student loan debt. In my small business, I've had to deal with the ever-increasing costs of doing business. And I’m worried about whether we’ll be supporting education when my son starts school.
We can do better than this. I was taught as a child that there is always room for improvement. I’ll work hard to create a stronger Oregon knowing we can always do better.
With a focus on the right values and priorities, we’ll start making progress on creating economic opportunities for local families and small businesses. More young people will get the college education that’s so vital to success today. And families will start to experience more certainty being able to plan for the future.
As I begin the legislative session I want to make sure I am hearing from you and listening to your voice. Please visit the Be Heard page to see how you can engage with me in Salem and help me in making Oregon the best it can be.
