US Congress

5th District

Why I'm running.

I am running because I care deeply about my state and country and the attacks on our democracy like we saw on January 6th. We need members of Congress that represent their community, not an ideology. I have lived in the district for over 40 years as a veterinarian, farmer, state legislator, and now congressman with a proven track record of bringing people together to solve real Oregon problems. I am proud of the work I have done to help Oregon families deal with Covid and the Infrastructure law that builds a brighter future for our children and grandchildren.

My top 3 priorities.

We must pass my prescription drug bill allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices, limit annual out-of-pocket costs for seniors to $2,000, and cap insulin at $35/month.

Enact affordable housing, universal pre-K/child care from Build Back Better.

Robust tax credits for renewable energy technology and alternative fuels are critical.

Why voters should choose me.

I am socially progressive and fiscally responsible like my district. I have an A rating with NEA, 100% rating from the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, NARAL, Planned Parenthood, Citizens United, Vote Climate PAC, and Clean Water Action. I recognize the role our natural resource partners play in fighting climate change and can bring them to the table. I am a proven problem solver that brings our diverse community together to create a bright future for all our children and grandchildren.
