It is an honor to represent the people of North and Northeast Portland in the Oregon Legislature. We are a district rich in diversity and ambition.

I have new committee assignments for the 2015 Session. I am continuing on the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee, and joining the House Education Committee as vice-chair. I also look forward to serving on a new Ways and Means Subcommittee on Information Technology. I continue to serve on the Oregon Commission on Black Affairs and the Regional Arts and Culture Council. I look forward to these new challenges, but more importantly to these new opportunities to solve problems for Oregon.

We continue to face urgent problems, with scarce resources with which to solve them. I believe in asking of every decision, “How will this make our lives better, in my District and in the State as a whole?” I think we also have to consider: "Will this decision make something worse?" I am proud of the work we have done to focus what we have on building our economic vitality and security. I will continue to focus on increasing economic opportunities, protecting and improving our environment both locally and globally, improving public safety in a real, meaningful and humane way, and ensuring access to a complete and comprehensive education for every child, close to home.

I sincerely value your input, questions, and concerns; in fact, I need them. Please do not hesitate to contact my office regarding any issue that is important to you. You can leave a message for my office at (503) 986-1443, or by email at
