Andrea Salinas for State Representative

Meet Andrea Salinas

Thank you for your interest in learning more about me and my service to the state of Oregon. I’ve had the honor and privilege to serve as the Oregon State Representative for House District 38, Southwest Portland and Lake Oswego, since September 2017. Prior to my service as a state representative, I worked on the frontlines of politics to protect and pass policies that help women and children, working people, seniors, and the environment.

As a working mom to a student in the Lake Oswego School District, I know the important role a strong community plays in our children’s education. When racism and bigotry in our schools made headlines in the 2016 election, I took my ethic of hard work and led by example. I co-founded LO for LOve to teach our children that diversity, equity, inclusion and kindness are values we lead with in Lake Oswego. I know how to get things done in our state Capitol. I have a proven record of bringing state elected leaders together to pass legislation in Salem. This includes protecting our kids from sexual harassment and gun violence, fighting high prescription drug prices and supporting the efforts to pass the nation’s strongest paid family medical leave bill in 2019.

I do this work because for too many Oregonians, the cards are stacked against them. Wages aren’t keeping pace with inflation, college is becoming increasingly out of reach and health care consumes a bigger chunk of families’ incomes and small business profits.

I’m ready to continue to lead as your State Representative and do it in a way that brings people along, leaves the door open, reaches out to lift others up and puts more chairs at the table. This is the type of leadership we need at Oregon’s State Capitol. I ask for your support to re-elect Andrea Salinas for State Representative.

Sincerely,
Andrea Salinas

HEALTH CARE

We must find a way to provide adequate health care to all Oregonians. Medical illness and debt is the leading cause of bankruptcy and missed work and school days. Until we can provide foundational health care for all, we cannot fulfill Oregon's economic potential.

EDUCATION

Full funding of our k-12 education system is a top priority for me. Too many of our students are not workforce-ready because we don't give them all the education they need. We have graduation and post-secondary education goals in place but our teachers and students can't be expected to achieve them without adequate resources.

ENVIRONMENT

We have already seen the devastation caused by global warming in various parts of our state. Protecting the climate is not only imperative to our economic prosperity and environmental sustainability, but also to our people and way of life as Oregonians.
