"Now, more than ever, we need a Metro Council that connects with and convenes local governments, businesses, constituents, and communities who are all too often otherwise left out."
For decades we have counted on Metro to help our local communities work together on issues such as transportation, land use, and livability. Today our region is facing a lot of challenges. We are at a true turning point. Now, more than ever, we need a Metro Council that connects with and convenes local governments, businesses, constituents, and communities who are all too often otherwise left out. As Metro considers advancing policy solutions to the region’s housing crisis, the stakes are extraordinarily personal for many of us, our friends, and neighbors. That’s why I’m running.
In the ten years that I’ve lived in Metro’s 2nd District, I’ve been deeply involved in community, taking on the unglamorous work that keeps our communities functioning. From special district budgeting to the local planning process, I’m proud of my record of working through difficult issues. As someone who has worked professionally at the city, county, and state levels of government, I have a unique understanding of how government can best succeed when taking on new challenges.
As we head toward election day I will be working hard to meet you and many of our neighbors from Gladstone, Johnson City, Lake Oswego, Milwaukie, Happy Valley, Oregon City, West Linn, Southwest Portland, and unincorporated Clackamas.
I hope I will earn your support.
