Our Democracy, Our Future
Democracy works when people’s voices are heard, the public is engaged, and our political process is responsive to our concerns. It’s the Secretary of State’s job to make that happen.
I’m running for Secretary of State to protect our democracy, strengthen our communities, and safeguard our environment.
Here’s my plan to make our democracy work:
Secure our elections and establish a voting culture
Protect elections and engage more Oregonians through expanded cybersecurity, education, and accessibility
Ensure that government works through accountability
Promote equity and economic vitality and make sure our taxpayer dollars are spent effectively and for their intended purpose
Safeguard our state lands and waterways, now and forever
Secure clean air and water through sustainable management of our state lands and waterways
What people are saying about Jamie
We can no longer depend solely on the broadmindedness and goodwill of NW Oregon-based leaders to pledge outreach to other parts of the state. We need leaders who have been “present” east of the mountains as more than a visitor; who have repeatedly trekked through the breadth of Southern Oregon, our coastal counties, and Central and Northeast Oregon; have lived with and listened to those who live there.

The growing political divide is eroding our trust in government and in each other. Across our state, Oregonians feel unheard and overlooked, even when we agree on desired outcomes. We need to build an equitable and inclusive Oregon Way so our government works for all of us.
