What I Believe
Nobody who works full time should live in poverty.
Oregon can take practical, effective steps to counter the obscene wealth and opportunity gaps prevailing in America.
Action We Need
Make Oregon’s tax system more progressive and productive. Keep building the progressive and diverse coalition that can make that happen
Stabilize ample funding for public education. Investing in K-12, community colleges and tech-ed programs are critical to opening doors to family wage jobs
Defend against so-called “right to work” measures and attacks on collective bargaining that shift even more power from working people to corporations.
Tilt economic development strategies towards locally-owned businesses and people who want to start them
Work with local governments across the state to make housing affordable for more Oregonians
