Andrea Salinas for State Representative

HOUSING AFFORDABILITY

As our state faces a housing affordability crisis, the legislature passed legislation to stabilize rents and end no-cause evictions and preserve publicly supported housing. In addition, the legislature has passed more than $350 million in funding for renter resources, homeless services and prevention, affordable housing preservation, and housing supply and home ownership.

Protecting Tenants

SB 608, the tenant protection bill is an important step in addressing the housing crisis and providing stability for renters. This legislation will provide predictability and stability to renters throughout the state who are subject to rent gouging and sudden, no-cause evictions. Stable and affordable housing is necessary for children to learn, for parents to work and for families and our economy to thrive. I was proud to support this bill on the floor of the House in 2019.

Stable Homes for Oregon Families

I have a record of fighting for safe and stable homes for Oregon families. I fought alongside coalition members of Stable Homes for Oregon Families to protect tenants from out of control rent increases and no cause evictions. I worked closely with House and Senate leadership to advance House Bill 2004 through the legislative process in 2017 where the bill won a successful vote in the House but failed to pass the Senate.

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.

Andrea Salinas

Meet Andrea

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.

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.
