Mark Gamba for Congress
The Oregon Primary deadline of May 19 is looming, with ballots arriving in our mailboxes any day now. As we review our options for local, state and federal elected representatives, please note that we have an excellent option this time around for our U.S. Congressional representative. Mark Gamba is running as Democrat for Congress, for the seat held by Kurt Schrader since 2009.
As mayor of Milwaukie, Oregon since 2015, Mark Gamba has devoted his time, talent and energy to addressing fundamental issues that affect everyday lives, including the proper role of government and how it can work to provide progressive leadership that is inclusive and addresses social and environmental justice. Key issues that motivate Mark daily include climate change and related natural resource management issues, universal access to healthcare, affordable housing, a living wage, campaign finance reform and voter rights.
Mark Gamba is not accepting any campaign funding from corporate donors. I believe Mark Gamba has the progressive values needed to represent us in Congress. Take a look at his website at www.markgamba.com for US Representative Oregon 5th District to see what you think. And please vote in the May 19 primary – your vote matters!
