     As a Multnomah County Commissioner, I will bring strong, reasoned leadership to the Board as well as the ability and willingness to work collaboratively to solve the very difficult budget issues we all will continue to face. I am passionate about the need to engage underserved communities, and can count on my relationships already in place to create a clear understanding of the issues and to forge new partnerships with those whose voices are not already heard. I am intimately aware of the need for the valuable public services the county provides, and as a child, my family and I were on the receiving end of those services. It is my life's work to strive for equity and opportunity for all, and I hope to have the chance to do so as Multnomah County Commissioner for District 2.
