Investing in Education

Courtney has experienced first-hand the challenges of large class sizes and tight budgets. She will:

  • Fight hard to support our public-school students and teachers and provide them with the resources they need.
  • Advocate for common sense gun legislation that makes our schools safer.
  • Work to increase the number of mental health care professionals in schools.

Fighting for Oregon Families

No one should fear losing their job for taking time off to care for a sick family member. As a working mom, Courtney will support:

  • Paid Family Medical Leave.
  • Affordable child care.
  • Equal pay for equal work.

Championing Affordable Healthcare

Health care is a human right. We need to expand access, not limit it. As someone who was once denied health insurance, and as the wife of an optometrist who navigates health insurance as a provider, Courtney has seen complicated insurance challenges. Courtney will:

  • Support universal healthcare, including mental and reproductive healthcare.
  • Address the high cost of prescription drugs.

Protecting Our Environment

Courtney knows we must aggressively address climate change. As a lifelong environmentalist, she will:

  • Support Clean Air and Clean Energy Jobs bills.
  • Work to remove toxic pesticides in our schools and parks.
  • Protect the Oregon we love — beautiful waterways, clean air, and rich, historic farmland.
