Uniting Our Community
Thank you for supporting my re-election effort. With your help we won almost 70% of the votes cast. Now we need to get to work creating opportunity for Oregonians all across the state and protecting vulnerable people.
The election showed some sharp differences of opinion here in our state and across our country. We need to create opportunity for all families to earn a good living and care for their loved ones. We also need to make sure Oregon is a place where all people are treated with respect and dignity regardless of their race, religion, gender, heritage, or sexual orientation.
There have been reports of bigoted events around our state and country, and even in our own community. Lake Oswego is a politically diverse community united by tolerance. We need to reinforce that message with our children and throughout this community. Let’s be a model of how people with different views can live together and support one another as one community.
This Friday there is a great march in support of love and diversity for Lake Oswego families. You can read more about it here. I hope you can join us for the event.
