As a school psychologist, I see the impact of lead on child learning and brain health.
Oregon is not so different from Flint, Michigan. In 2019, over 50% of the schools in Marion County registered lead contamination levels above the EPA standard. In Portland, high levels of lead have alarmed the Oregon Health Authority, which has demanded that the city’s water bureau take action.
Rep. Kurt Schrader in 2016, was one of only three Democrats who voted for H.R. 5538, which would have delayed the EPA’s efforts to prevent lead poisoning.
I care about children and our community so I am glad to have a better choice Jamie McLeod-Skinner is a small business owner, engineer and attorney, who has focused her career on Oregon rebuilding communities after wildfires and protecting our natural resources. I want a representative who represents us.
