Daniel Karnes

Candidate for:

CD5 Delegate

Why I'm running.

I am running to be a delegate to represent issues and concerns of constituents of Oregon Congressional District 5 to our Representative, Lori Chavez-DeRemer. As a resident of that small sliver of Multnomah County redrawn into District 5 in the latest redistricting, I have a particular incentive to make sure our new Representative is aware that a certain pocket of her district contains a number of urban, progressive, voting Democrats who will be monitoring the policies advocated and votes taken by her. Moreover, I am hopeful that my status as a veteran (drafted 1967; Vietnam 1968-69) will grant me a certain credibility in advocating for her to honor her campaign pledge to support the interests of this group in the challenges we face.
