Critical Races, Powerful Voices
Our progressive powerhouse
Kate Brown for Governor
When she unexpectedly became governor in 2015, Kate easily stepped into a leadership role. She focused on issues important to families, such as raising the minimum wage, guaranteeing paid sick leave, and investing in education. Not one to stand still, she was the first governor to sign a motor voter law, end the use of coal power, and codify access to the full range of reproductive health care. We can count on Kate to be a progressive leader for Oregon.
Strong candidates, critical races
House District 51
Small business owner and the daughter of teachers, we can count on Janelle to lead in the legislature for business, communities, education, and promoting diverse voices. She drives initiatives for strong neighborhoods and smart development that will be the foundation for a stronger Oregon. In an East County district, she believes that infrastructure means sidewalks and streetlights that make routes to school and work safer.
House District 52
Anna will continue her years of organizing and building communities when she has the opportunity to serve Hood River and all of us in the Oregon House of Representatives. Along with her work as an educator, she has brought attention and change for older Oregonians as one of the founders of the Aging in the Gorge Alliance. From pre-schools to university students to veterans to seniors, Anna has proven her ability to listen and generate change.
Senate District 26
The conventional wisdom in hospitals is “if you want to make something happen, ask a nurse.” Chrissy serves on the local school board, has deep roots in her community, and knows how to get things done. Her focus on the school board has been to bring more teachers and resources to classrooms. With a son and daughter in school, Chrissy is acting to make Oregon a great place to grow and learn.
House District 37
As a nurse for geriatric and hospice patients, Rachel has held the hands and brought care to hundreds, if not thousands, of aging and homebound Oregonians. She is ready to bring her commitment to the legislature and an experienced community voice to Salem. Rachel will prioritize gun safety, health care initiatives, and innovative education.
Senate District 20
With roots in Oregon generations deep, Charles understands how government decisions affect real people. With years of experience studying issues, he understands how to make the most of an opportunity. Charles has committed his time to improve children’s health care in his community and care for open spaces. For Oregon City and Clackamas, Charles will work for long-term transportation solutions and livability.
OR Congressional District 2
Jamie McLeod-Skinner is running to change the conversation for Oregon’s 2nd Congressional District. For the past 16 months, she has traveled over 40,000 miles in her Jeep, talking and listening to voters, showing a level of engagement the district has lacked. She is committed to communities and focused on issues that affect people’s lives directly, such as health care, education, our changing climate, and the importance of agriculture and economic development. Jamie will be representative for the people, not corporations, and give the 2nd District a committed, visible presence in Washington, D.C.
