Region 01: Central Valley • Marion & Polk Counties

It would be an honor to serve another term as one of your Region 1 Directors, and I’m excited for this opportunity to ask for your vote. I have worked in the Aging & People with Disabilities program at ODHS for 17 years, and have been an active SEIU 503 member ever since. I am also a steward, CAPE Council delegate, and have been serving on our Union’s Rules Committee and Special Committee on Universal Health Care. While serving on the Board and in these other roles, I continue to learn so much from listening to the voices of members from every sector of our Union – care providers, state workers, university workers, local governments, and members working in private non-profits. It has been a privilege to serve on the most diverse Board in SEIU 503’s history, and in learning so much from the perspectives and life experiences of each person serving on the Board. In this role, I would continue to advocate for member in all sectors in Region 1 and in SEIU 503 as a whole, support and advocate collective bargaining for fair and robust contracts in all sectors, recruit and mentor new member leaders from diverse backgrounds and lived experiences, and champion our Union’s work and advocacy for racial justice, economic justice, and climate justice in Oregon. I ask for your vote to continue this work for you on the Board and with you as a proud member of SEIU 503; as stated in one of our values, “In Union, we have power.”
