Why I'm Running

The promise of Oregon is a state where everyone can live and work free of discrimination. As a civil rights attorney who has represented hundreds of Oregonians throughout the state, I know that we have not yet made good on that promise.

As the next Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries, I intend to do just that.

My work ethic was formed by watching my parents grow and sustain a small business for three decades in Oregon. Today I have my own small business, a law practice where I have worked to level the playing field for workers and employers alike.

I know better than most the challenges facing both workers and employers in this state. And I know the opportunities too.

Together we can build an agency that will be accessible, responsive, and fair in enforcing the laws. I hope you'll join me!
