An Effective and Experienced Leader for Multnomah County
People deserve access to good jobs, quality primary and mental health care, affordable housing, a clean environment, safe communities and a fair and sustainable tax system.
I've spent the last 20 years building partnerships with non-profits, religious organizations, businesses and local government to make our county a better place.
As a Multnomah County Commissioner, I'll make public safety a priority. 50% of the county's budget goes to public safety. We're not spending those resources wisely. We need a strong partnership between Multnomah County, Portland, and the state that further reduces crime, which offers responsible punishments for offenders, and treatment for people facing addiction and mental health issues so they stay out of prison.
I'm running to leave Multnomah County a better place for the next generation. We need more Sun Schools, School Based Health Care Clinics and a focus on children.
Together we can build a better community.
