Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Thank you for visiting my website.
I am grateful for the privilege of representing residents of North and Northeast Portland. House District 44 stretches from the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette rivers to the business corridor east of the Portland International Airport. From close-knit neighborhoods to thriving small businesses and critical industrial areas, our community is vibrant and reflective of the opportunities and challenges facing our state.
As Speaker of the House, I have led the way on increasing the minimum wage, banning racial profiling, guaranteeing earned sick time for every worker and many more important victories for Oregonians. Click here to see how one national progressive organization viewed our 2015 work (see page 6!).
Our democracy relies on public involvement and advocacy. I hope you will participate in your state government by contacting me about what is important to you. To read more about my legislative work, click here for my state website.
We all have a stake in improving our state and our community. Please join me in working to make sure every Oregonian has a fair shot at opportunity and success.
