Julie Fahey is passionate about issues related to economic opportunity for all Oregonians – including policies that help working families, create living wage jobs, support seniors in their retirement, reduce class sizes, and improve high school graduation rates.
She is committed to the idea that our elected representatives should be open and transparent with their constituents. Throughout the 2017 legislative session, Julie hosted monthly town halls and constituent coffee meetings to hear directly from people in West Eugene and Junction City about the issues important to them. Locally, her biggest accomplishment was keeping the Junction City Hospital open – which plays a significant role in our public safety system and local economy.
Julie has seventeen years of experience in the private sector as a business consultant and co-founder of a human resources consulting firm for businesses and non-profits. Through her work, she helps employers pay their employees fairly, build skilled workforces, and make their organizations great places to work.
Julie is a strong advocate for equal access to quality education, and she has served as an officer in her Eugene chapter of PEO, a philanthropic organization which provides scholarships and educational opportunities for women around the world. In her free time, she is an avid hiker and volunteered as a mentor on a backpacking expedition in Eastern Oregon with Big City Mountaineers, which leads wilderness trips for under-served youth.
