Constituent Coffee

Please join me for my first Constituent Coffee of 2016 at Manaia Coffee House and Island Grill, located at 203 E Main St. in Hillsboro. I will be at Manaia to take your questions, discuss issues impacting our community, and talk about the upcoming Legislative Session from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 23rd. I hope to see you there!

2016 Priority Bills

During even-numbered years the Legislative Session is constitutionally limited to 35 days. During these "short sessions" each legislator is limited to introducing 2 bills. 

The first bill I am planning to introduce closes a few loopholes in existing law to protect everyday Oregonians from predatory towing practices. My second bill establishes "Children's Special Districts," which would allow communities to form a new type of special district to fund activities for children outside of school time.

If you're interested in hearing more about these bills, or learning more about the upcoming Legislative Session, please join me at my Constituent Coffee on January 23rd.

Small Business Advisory Council

There are a couple of openings on my Small Business Advisory Council to replace members who are transitioning out. If you are a small business owner in Senate District 15 (Hillsboro, Cornelius, Forest Grove, and North Plains), and you are interested in discussing issues that impact your business, please contact my office. I will conduct a review of interested candidates and contact applicants by March, 2016.
