Nurses, firefighters, and county workers agree

by Jessica Vega Pederson

These are my priorities:

Standing up for working families, protecting our environment, and making Multnomah County an even better place to live for the next generation.

We made important progress on these priorities last year, and people are taking notice. Passing paid sick leave for all Oregon workers and giving more Oregon students a chance to earn a college degree are just a couple of examples of the ways we stood up for Oregonians last year.

Next week I head back to Salem and I can’t wait to get to get to work finding ways to combat our housing crisis, raise the minimum wage, and provide clean energy across our state.

This month has not only been filled with preparing for the legislative session but also with huge support for my campaign. I’m honored to have received endorsements from AFSCME Local 88, the Oregon Nurses Association, and the Portland Metro Firefighters!

Starting Monday, I’ll be in a five-week fundraising blackout and I need your support now to reach my goal of 50 online donations by the end of the month. We’re getting close—Donate now before the fundraising blackout on Monday!

I am a mother, a business professional, a progressive Democrat, a proud resident of East Portland, and the first Latina elected to the Oregon House of Representatives.

I'm running for Multnomah County Commissioner because I believe everyone in our region deserves a fair shot. I want to make Multnomah County an even better place to live, work, and raise a family. I'm ready to get to work and I hope you'll join us!.
