I am dedicated to improving access to mental health care, fighting homelessness, and strengthening our community. 


During my time as Multnomah County Commissioner, I am proud of the work I’ve done to improve services:

  • Launched the first comprehensive analysis of our mental health care system.

  • Led the county’s effort to hold drug manufacturers accountable for the opioid epidemic.

  • Successfully advocated for a mental health resource center in downtown Portland.

  • Advocated for stronger diesel emissions and clean air standards.

  • Helped lead efforts to sue the Trump administration over cuts to Planned Parenthood.

  • Serves on the executive committee for A Home for Everyone to fight homelessness.

  • Supported increasing capacity of housing with access to mental health and substance use disorder treatment.


I am focused on expanding on this work to help more families access services, including: 

  • Increasing services to combat the mental health crisis. 

  • Ensuring access to housing for the most vulnerable.

  • Improving the intersection of public health, safety, and human services to ensure our limited dollars help the most people.
