Are you tired of our city charter being disregarded and the voices of our citizens going unheard? I am, and that is why I am running for office.
In 2008 I ran for the Oregon City Commission because I was tired of going to meeting after meeting where I left thinking, “They just aren’t listening.” I was elected by citizens who felt the same and I proudly served 8 years on the City Commission from 2009 to 2016. I listened to the citizens who elected me and I worked hard to make decisions that were in the best interest of the city.
This is a crucial time for Oregon City. We know development is coming to our area, but we must make certain that we retain this city’s unique charm, heritage and livability. City services should be in place before large development begins and our city government needs to create an atmosphere where citizen input is valued.
I have lived and worked here all of my life. I care about this town and I have a strong understanding of the hardworking people who make this place their home. It is time to move forward and replace those jobs lost at the mill by using our natural resource assets, tourism potential and vacant industrial land to attract businesses that provide good local jobs while maintaining the character of our city.
I listened before and I’ll listen again.
