Why did you become involved in the Democratic Party of Multnomah County?
It was a place where I could try to make things better for all the people.
Why do you think it’s important for Democrats to become involved at the local level?
Because that’s where they live. The affinity for community is important in terms of persuading others to support Democratic principles.
What are some of the priorities for our state and for Multnomah County this year?
Police accountability, housing, health care, education, environment, economic security.
What is making you hopeful right now?
The recognition by more and more people that they cannot let someone else make decisions for them — that they have to be involved.
