About Pam

Pam has spent the last 20 years helping to make Washington county a place where we can all live, work, and raise our families. Pam has led efforts to provide funding for our schools, create job training opportunities for youth, help design TriMet’s low-income fare program to help our seniors and other vulnerable residents, and much more. As your Commissioner, Pam will make sure Washington County continues to lead our region in creating family wage jobs, tackles our transportation infrastructure needs, and ensures housing is attainable for residents.

Pam’s Priorities

  • Transportation infrastructure that works, including addressing congestion, dangerous intersections, and our lack of sidewalks 
  • Making sure housing is attainable, and that residents can afford to live where they work
  • Jobs that support families and job training and apprenticeship opportunities
  • Stable and adequate funding for our schools
  • Ensuring a regional approach to homelessness 
  • Protecting our environment and being a champion for our farms and farmers
  • Promoting and supporting our small businesses and budding entrepreneurs
