Brian Clem—As Oregon as it gets.
I believe in our Citizen Legislature and work to bring people together from diverse backgrounds to solve Oregon’s problems. I try to never forget where I came from or who I was elected to serve: working families, kids, seniors and small business people who don’t have lobbyists. I’m proud to be your voice, and to continue that service I need your help on my campaign.

But before I ask for your help, let me show you who you’ll be helping. Since you first elected me in 2006, I’ve been fighting for the issues below and for many others. These are just a few examples of my progressive values and of the legislation I have worked on.

Our programming for the 2020 Democratic National Convention begins tomorrow afternoon! This will be a truly historic Convention, and we're so excited that it's going to allow Oregonians like you to take part in more ways than ever before.
