A Note to All My Supporters
I want thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work in this campaign. All you brave, wonderful, caring people who encouraged me, made donations, put up signs, made calls, talked to friends, attended and helped with town halls. These seven months have gone by quickly!
Even though we were outnumbered almost two-to-one by Republicans, we put up one hell of a fight! And the issues we’re fighting for are still in play. I believe we can continue to advocate, rally, assemble, show films, talk with our neighbors, and take our message of environmental, social and housing justice to the people.
Over time I believe we can turn this district purple and even blue. The idea of bridging the partisan divide to get there is so important. On Building Oregon Back Better, greener, more just, on addressing wildfires, creating affordable housing, on defeating the pandemic, it’s a long list. And those issues remain just as urgent no matter who is in the legislature.
While this was not the result we hoped for, I am resolved to continue, to carry on and champion the issues that are so important. I look forward to working with you as we keep on keeping on!
Blessings, thanks and safety to each of you,
