I’m writing to ask you to join me in supporting Jessica Gomez to be my replacement for Oregon Senate District 3.
Jessica is uniquely qualified for the position. She is a business owner and mother who has served on several boards and was appointed by the governor to be a trustee for the Oregon Institute of Technology.
If elected, Jessica will bring her impressive work ethic to our state capitol. We need real life experience among our legislators to find solutions to the problems facing our state, including public education, health care, the environment and balancing the budget. Jessica has that experience.
Please join me in helping to elect Jessica as the first Hispanic female senator to join the Republican caucus in the history of Oregon. And thank you for the opportunity to serve you in filling out the term of my friend, the late Sen. Alan Bates.
Sen. Alan DeBoer
