​Biography

 

For more than 20 years, Representative Andrea Salinas has worked on the front lines of politics, to protect and pass policies that help women and children, working people, seniors and the environment. Andrea first served as an intern to Senator Dianne Feinstein in her San Francisco district office, then as legislative staff to Senator Harry Reid, as tax and trade policy advisor to Congressman Pete Stark and finally as a district aide to Congresswoman Darlene Hooley.

 

Prior to becoming a legislator, Andrea worked as an advocate in Salem to help provide Oregon families with a fair shot by increasing the minimum wage, fighting climate change and providing comprehensive reproductive health care coverage to all Oregon women.

 

Andrea was appointed to the legislature in September 2017 and won her first election in 2018. Since that time, she has been working to lower the price of prescription drugs, prevent bankruptcy from medical debt, increase the legal remedies for victims of strangulation, and improve sexual harassment investigations in K-12 schools.

 

Andrea quickly assumed leadership roles in the legislature where she serves as the Chair of the House Committee on Health Care, Co-Chair of the Oregon Complete Count Committee and Assistant Majority Leader.

 

In addition, Andrea serves on the newly formed House Subcommittee on Behavioral Health, Joint Ways and Means Subcommittee on Human Services and the Energy & Environment Committee, the Willamette Falls Locks Commission and the Oregon Public Employees’ Benefit Board.

 

Andrea earned her BA in psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. She lives in Lake Oswego with her husband Chris, daughter Amelia and labradoodle Cooper.
