Make a Small Donation to Help Our Campaign!

Portland's Small Donor Election program decreases the influence of large donors, and gives voice to small local donors like you! Your 20$ contribution could be matched by the Small Donor Election program, ensuring that candidates are on a relatively equal footing, and reducing the undue influence money has on politics. 



Why I'm Running

It Is Time for Action, Not Just Words

"I am running for City Council because I love this city, and believe that Portland is, and always will be, what we make it. As a resident of Downtown, I see the consequences of the concurrent crises of addiction and inaccessible housing on a daily basis. 

Over the last few years, our Community has faced some of its greatest challenges. It is with the creative, diverse, and caring people that have made Portland both great and Weird that we can build the city that we are proud of, again. "
