As a Democrat, I'm supporting Firmin for House District 38
I'm a proud Democrat eagerly voting for Independent Party and Republican Party nominee Alistair Firmin for Oregon House District 38, which represents Lake Oswego and Southwest Portland. Why am I voting for the Independent/Republican nominee and not the Democrat nominee even though I'm a Democrat?
First, I can take social issues off the table. Like myself, Alistair is pro-choice, pro-equal rights and pro-gun safety.
Second, one -party rule just isn't working in Oregon. What Alistair brings to the table is what is missing in our state government today: a deep curiosity to understand where others are coming from and to learn from them. Alistair thrives on bringing people together to find common goals and deliver solid long-term results. He does not start with the premise that the other side is wrong, but rather just the opposite. Alistair has used these skills as board chair to lead several local nonprofit boards including navigating OMSI through COVID shutdowns.
Oregon needs a results-oriented independent thinker like Alistair who has been successfully using his leadership skills outside of the political realm for years - NOT another career politician which as we know does not deliver results. Please join me in voting for Alistair Firmin for Oregon House District 38.
