It is an honor and a privilege to be able to serve House District 36, Portland’s West Side, in the Oregon House of Representatives.
Your thoughts, ideas, and concerns about our community and our shared vision for Oregaon are very important to me. I welcome you to call (503) 986-1436 or email me at Rep.AkashaLawrenceSpence@oregonlegislature.gov to share your questions or concerns.
This page is designed to help us get to know each other, and to help you navigate the legislative process. Here is a link to the Oregon Legislative Information System (Olis), where you can find information about bills, committees, and resolutions https://olis.oregonlegislature.gov/liz/2019I1. It is my goal to ensure that every constituent knows how their legislature works, and is engaged in the measures affecting their daily lives. My office hosts digital information sessions, workshops, and town halls to this end, and would love to hear from you if you have any suggestions on how to get us all there.
I encourage you to stop by my office at your Capitol in Salem when you visit during the legislative session. Meeting with constituents, hearing your personal stories, listening to you advocate for the needs of our fellow community members is one of the most rewarding parts of doing this job.
I thank you all for trusting me with the privilege of serving our community, our district, and our state.
Representative Akasha Lawrence Spence
