Why I'm running.
As a mother of 2 school-age children in a rural part of Multnomah County, I feel I can bring a perspective a bit different than people living closer to downtown. I also have worked for almost 20 years in an industry where I have to mesh both with college educated architects and engineers as well as those in the trades, mostly electricians. With so many neighbors and customers who have different political beliefs, I can help to identify areas of possible common ground or ways to promote proposed legislation to turn it into reality and not just a good idea that will never get passed into law. Even very progressive policies can be embraced by conservatives if cast in the right light. Also, I love logic problems! I think of legislation as proposed solutions to problems we have in society and I would love to be part of a team thinking up innovative solutions. I hope you put your trust in me as a Delegate to the CD3 Committee. Thank you for your time.
