Growing up in Portland I have gotten to see the steady decline of such a beautiful city at the hands of political battles. These leaders have become more enthralled with what is good for themselves and their specific political leaning, instead of what can truly help the community. By allowing our City to get to this point we have failed in general, but we have especially failed those who are the most vulnerable. Our elderly, disabled, and our children who may not have the means to protect themselves, are in an environment filled with brazen individuals looking to prey on them. I truly want to see a community that is safe for all individuals and one that we can be proud of, and ultimately, I think I can make that change.
I have rejected political contributions and funded this campaign independently, because I am not and will not be bound to any special interests. The citizens of Multnomah County are the only ones I am beholden too.
