You Can Count on Me
Since arriving in Eugene in the late 1980’s I’ve been actively engaged, showing up, and building relationships by listening and working alongside others. This work has taken many forms, including:
Ensuring healthcare services are available to those who need them.
Creating greater access to affordable, nutritious foods in structurally marginalized neighborhoods.
Protecting workers through sick pay, paid family and medical leave, and "ban the box" policies, so that everyone has a fair shot and can care for themselves and their loved ones without forfeiting pay or losing their jobs.
Safeguarding consumers and reining in predatory lending practices.
Advocating for policies to end racial profiling.
Organizing women and caregivers to share their stories and advocate for change.
While I’ve done much to chart a course toward justice, there is more to be done. We need many more policies, programs, and initiatives like these right now if we are serious about closing the gap on income inequality, improving health outcomes for all, addressing systemic racism, and minimizing further harm to marginalized people.
I do this work because it matters to me on a personal level, and because I feel accountable to future generations, including my own children and grandchildren. I’m driven to do what I can to create healthier, safer, more just communities. We must do better by our neighbors. While this has always been true the scale of these challenges is only growing. These times call for compassion, sustained attention, courage, and proven experienced leadership in order to bring the change we need.
I am committed to winning this seat on November 3rd with enthusiasm and focus, but I can't do it without you. Your volunteer time, insights, contributions, and encouragement helped me win the primary. You can propel this grassroots campaign by making a contribution of any size here. Your contributions go directly toward living wages for staff, web hosting, printing, postage, and other important campaign materials.
