Let's Make Our Economy Work for Everyone!

Working families need a break.  We need investments to support families and good jobs, small business and local industry.  Investments like: Broadband; Healthcare for everyone; Childcare; Public education; Equitable law enforcement; Mental health and housing for the homeless; Clean energy; Forest and farm support.

I live on forestland and understand rural issues in our district.  I have always fought for individual rights including organizing the first LGBT events, working for school desegregation and for women’s rights and reproductive choice.  With a lifetime of union work, I know from negotiations how to get real results for working families.  Let’s make our economy work for everyone!
