Oregon House

House District 50

Why I'm running.

I am running for re-election to hold the seat of State Representative for House District 50. The district makes up a little portion of East Portland & Gresham. I am running for re-election to continue the work be started in 2020. From stronger welcoming schools to improving workforce developments, Oregon is in need of legislators who are ready to work with everyone to ensure our state is set up for success. As a 27 year old legislator, I bring a unique experience that needs to be heard in all the decision making tables.

My top 3 priorities.

Education: ensuring that K-12 schools and higher education schools are equipped with all the resources needed to fully stay in person.
Workforce Development / Economy: Getting our workforce ready and investing in apprenticeships.
Public Safety: Continuing to invest in innovative plans to fully address violence and finding the root cause.

Why voters should choose me.

In my first term as a legislator, we worked and passed significant legislation that will continue to prioritize Oregonians for the years to come. From passing a record school fund investment of $9.3 billion, to passing crucial housing packages, and the continuation of protecting our Oregon workers. The work must continue and I am ready to be that champion for our Oregon residents.
