It’s time for a big change in our country’s leadership. Learn about and vote in November for Jamie McLeod-Skinner to be our next U.S. Representative.
Jamie has made a life-long commitment to public service with a strong belief in people over politics. She’s working on the ground to meet our most important needs. For example, her top priority issue is a livable wage, and she has focused on global warming as “the biggest threat to our environment.”
An engineer and lawyer, she has both international experience and local elected service, working on water quality and other environmental and social issues. She says: “We must develop clean energy (solar, wind, geothermal) to create good-paying jobs and preserve our wilderness and natural resources. And shift tax incentives toward clean, sustainable energy systems and away from dirty fuels.”
In stark contrast, incumbent Greg Walden remains silent on the stagnant wages and the widespread poverty all around us, and on the damage already obvious from global warming.
Walden’s votes in Congress have gravely harmed us, from his approval of the disastrous Iraq War, up to his recent vote for egregious tax cuts for the wealthy and trillion-dollar deficits. He has even sidestepped and minimized the outrage over the separation of terrified, crying children, saying merely that it’s, “…another example of the need for reform in our immigration system.”
Walden is a member of a private club of wealthy elites, and we’re not invited in. It’s a rare town hall where he will even meet with us anymore.
But Jamie McLeod-Skinner will not leave us out in the cold. She eagerly welcomes us in to join the conversation and work together to solve the major problems that we face.
For starters, we will all have the chance to meet Jamie in person this coming Friday, June 29th, at a meet-and-greet at the Baker Library from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm, and then again at the Miner’s Jubilee on July 21st.
