REAL SOLUTIONS FOR REAL PEOPLE
I'm Loretta Smith, and I've spent more than twenty years fighting for the people of Multnomah County. I know that when it comes to making a real difference, it's not about politics, it's about people. Whether it's the elderly woman who needs to refinance her mortgage, or the family whose daughter dreamed of attending a military academy, I've devoted my life to making government more responsive to real people who need a strong voice advocating for them.
“Loretta is a passionate advocate and a tough fighter. Together, we've worked to solve problems big and small, and I can't think of a better person to serve our community as County Commissioner.”
U.S. Senator Ron Wyden
LORETTA'S TOP PRIORITY: OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR KIDS
As a single parent raising my son in NE Portland, I know that we've got to have safe neighborhoods and real opportunities for our kids in order for communities to thrive. I've seen the difference that outreach programs like Head Start and Boys and Girls Club can make, and I've worked to expand their reach.
“Loretta doesn't just talk about making a difference, she gets out there and makes it happen—partnering with local nonprofits as a volunteer, tutor and advocate. She's a true leader.”
CREATING JOBS AND SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESS
Keeping our community strong and vibrant and safeguarding our unique quality of life means supporting local business, protecting clean air and water, and providing training and a path to secure, family-wage jobs for all our citizens.
“Loretta has real, hands-on experience helping local small businesses cut through red tape so they can create jobs here. She has my vote!”
