Dear Friends,

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you in the Oregon House of Representatives. I am honored to represent District 40, which includes Oregon City, Gladstone, Jennings Lodge, Johnson City, as well as parts of Clackamas and Milwaukie.

I ran to represent you because I believe the values that make America great – hard work, telling the truth, and looking out for your neighbor – are under unprecedented assault. Government should be on the side of the people who work hard and play by the rules. But that is not happening right now – as anyone can attest who looks at Wall Street or the grip that special interests hold on Salem.

I am pleased to announce that before the 2013 session adjourned, the legislature authorized a $5 million investment in the Willamette Falls redevelopment at the former Blue Heron site. Securing these funds has been a top priority, and I appreciate the many community leaders who devoted countless hours to help make it happen. 

Again, thank you for the opportunity to serve as your State Representative. I frequently hold town halls and community events to hear your thoughts and concerns. Please drop me a line or sign up for my email newsletter to stay connected about how we can make Clackamas County an even better place to live, work, and raise a family.
