AAUP Represented Faculty and Academic Professional,
I’d like to invite you my campaign kickoff for state house district 36, which represents downtown and inner southwest Portland and includes PSU. For the past 15 years I have worked with many of you as an IT Specialist in CLAS. I have also served as a leader in my union, SEIU, most recently as chair for our successful statewide contract negotiation. For 3 years I served on Oregon’s Higher Education Coordinating Commission. I have been a community budget adviser to the City of Portland, and have been involved in this community in many other ways to make Portland and Oregon a better place to live.
I have fought for economic and social justice, for affordable, quality education, and for clean streets, air, and moving towards renewable energy. We need leaders in Salem who will stand up for working people, students, and educators. Please join me at my campaign kickoff.
