David Douglas School Board; Candidate for Oregon State House Representative, District 51
I cannot count how many times I have observed our elected leaders and thought "I care about these issues, I could do that job." About a year ago I challenged myself with, "prove it." However, like many Oregonians, I have little information about how to run a campaign or how to connect with those who do. I am delighted to be a part of Emerge Oregon because it exists for people like me-those who have exciting ideas about how to improve our government but need a crash-course in how to compete in the political horserace. Thanks Emerge Oregon, and as they say, "Giddy-up!"
