I oppose the proposed Jordan Cove pipeline because it crosses through areas prone to wildfire and earthquake and tsunami zones. Clearing our forests and disrupting our waterways for vulnerable fossil fuel infrastructure is a terrible idea.
Oregonians are more resilient when they are not living paycheck to paycheck. Increasing the minimum wage to $15 will help buffer families against disaster. And by reducing emissions and fighting climate change through the Clean Energy Jobs policy, we can stop "natural" disasters from getting worse.
I support overturning property tax limits Oregon passed in the 1990s, as well as increasing corporate taxes.
