I am delighted to be running for Multnomah County Chair.
When I was elected as District Two’s County Commissioner four years ago, my goal was to make County government more functional, more accountable and more focused on the needs of people. As the government most directly responsible for the health and safety of our community’s families, that is especially critical in these tough economic times.
We’ve made good progress:
- Ending Dysfunctional Government – The County Commission is working together collaboratively, moving our community forward.
- Helping Small Businesses – Lowered county taxes for small businesses and start ups.
- Leading on Sustainability and Green Jobs – Utilized rooftops of county buildings to create one of the Northwest's largest solar power plants without cost to county taxpayers. In fact, it will save the county thousands of dollars annually in lower energy costs.
- Keeping Families Safe and Healthy – Partnered with the City and provided the site to create a new 1-stop center for Domestic Violence Victims; helped protect SUN Schools, early childhood programs and School-based Health Centers.
I am running for Multnomah County Chair to continue that progress, keep the focus on serving people and ensuring your county government reflects the values and priorities of our community.
I would appreciate your support and your vote.
