Across Oregon, the most well-resourced neighborhoods are the safest. I am committed to policies that address root causes, interrupt cycles of violence, and provide neighborhoods with the resources necessary to improve safety and reduce incidents of violence.
Housing with wraparound services is the most humane and cost-effective approach to address homelessness. I will elevate policies that prioritize a housing first approach while also working to address the root causes of homelessness.
It is unacceptable that East Portlanders have a life expectancy of 10 years lower than Portlanders living west of I-205. I am committed to policies and programs that reduce health disparities and increase life expectancy in East Portland. No matter what zip code you live in, everyone deserves access to healthy food, safe neighborhoods, and clean air.
