What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
The COVID-19 pandemic is, of course, the biggest issue we’re all facing. After the pandemic has subsided, it’s important that we audit our response to determine what we did well and what we could have done better will prepare us for the next major challenge. My experience with the International Rescue Committee, leading humanitarian relief teams in former war zones, running refugee resettlement programs in the U.S., and going through National Incident Management System (NIMS) training gives me an uncommon understanding of the issues people face when their lives have been upended by crisis.
The growing political divide is another major issue as it 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. Our history has painful chapters, and our politics are filled with conflict. When we are defensive rather than responsive, we enable a future that reflects the past. We need to do the hard work of building an equitable and inclusive Oregon so our government works for all of us. Democracy works when people’s voices are heard, the public is engaged, and our political process is responsive to our concerns.

Question: What’s your favorite thing about being a rural Oregonian?
Jamie McLeod-Skinner: It’s probably the thing that’s true for all of Oregonians. It’s the sense of it’s people and it’s the sense of being both independent and interdependent, relying in each other and being proud of who we are.
Question: What did you do for the International Rescue Committee?
Jamie McLeod-Skinner: I managed the reconstruction and repair of schools and hospitals in post-war Bosnia and Kosovo. When I returned to the States, I managed their refugee resettlement office in San Jose.
