I sincerely recommend her to every voter.” Bernie Giusto, Sheriff Elect, Multnomah County. Gresham Professional Firefighters and Gresham Police Officers Associations endorse Jacquenette McIntire.

Financial Stability

Back to Basics. Decrease spending. Create family wage jobs. No more raids on emergency funds to balance the budget. Jacquenette is a businesswoman who can make tough decisions.

Citizens Have Good Ideas

Back to Basics. Jacquenette respects and welcomes the ideas, energy and talent of volunteers. As chair of the Police Advisory Committee, she initiated Oregon’s first Road Rage ordinance and a Speed Racing ordinance. Jacquenette always works with others to come up with results that benefit the community. That’s why she has the support of former city leaders, community volunteers, business leaders, neighbors and citizens of Gresham including Rod Park, Metro Councilor, State Representative Laurie Monnes Anderson and EastMetro Association of Realtors.
