Across America we hear the sound of our legislators’ minds snapping shut while they increasingly huddle in their respective extreme corners. Eventually this will bring us all down. One powerful remedy is to elect to our state legislatures people who, while sticking to their basic Democratic and Republican principles, really want to work collaboratively to do what our states and nation desperately require. Erik Jorgensen, running to represent Portland in House District 115, is such a candidate. We are lifelong liberal Democrats. Erik represents our personal and political values. He is highly intelligent, feet squarely on the ground, imbued with abundant common sense. He brings extensive experience and works extremely well and effectively with people. Most of all he is a man of unimpeachable personal character who has an open mind, is indelibly connected with Portland, and will be a dose of healthy medicine to our strained political systems.
