Dear Supporters and Friends,
First of all, I want to thank all of you that supported my candidacy. I will never forget your willingness to step up and support me.
I have to say here, that as a congressional candidate I learned a lot! This congressional primary, in just three months time, the candidates did more forums and debates than any other congressional race in Oregon’s history. We kept focused on the issues that our communities, our congressional district and our country care about. The wonderful people I met along this journey were inspiring and I look forward to meeting and working with them again.
Now. For the important part.
This upcoming special general election time period is extremely tight—January 31st. With the holidays figured in, the candidates will have about ten weeks in which to campaign for the special general election.
It is imperative that this Congressional District continues to be represented by a Democrat—and that Democrat is Suzanne Bonamici. I spent over three months campaigning with Senator Bonamici as an opponent in this special primary election, and while we may not agree on every issue and may differ in style, in my opinion, she is the clear choice. I wholeheartedly support and endorse her.
Middle-class issues and middle-class values have never been more important. This is an election that will have national attention and I believe that all of us together can make a very important difference in electing Suzanne Bonamici as the next Congressional Representative for Oregon’s 1st Congressional district.
As always my best to you,
Oregon State Representative, House District 31
