“Being taught to avoid talking politics has led to a lack of understanding of politics and religion. What we should have been taught was how to have a civil conversation about a difficult topic. Let’s talk and listen to each other! I want to help people, solve problems and move Clackamas County and Oregon in the right direction with good roads, no new taxes, and health and housing solutions.”
