Pam Treece Ends Year With Broad Base of Support


Treece has amassed a strong list of endorsers, including local elected officials, business groups, and organized labor.

Pam Treece, who announced her candidacy for Washington County Commissioner, District 2, in September, ends 2017 with a long list of endorsers -- including four regional mayors, two current members of Metro, two former District 2 Commissioners, and the current Washington County Chair. These local leaders are joining business groups and organized labor in supporting Pam -- including Hillsboro Chamber PAC, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 48, and Portland Metropolitan Association of Realtors.

Kathy Christy, a former District 2 Commissioner, commented in her endorsement of Pam: "I've represented District 2 and I believe Pam is the best choice to represent this district moving forward. She's knowledgeable, experienced, and I'm excited to be supporting her." Kathy Christy is supporting Pam alongside another former District 2 Commissioner, John Leeper.

Pam is also supported by current Washington County Chair Andy Duyck. “When I was elected back in 1994, I did not know half of what Pam does,” Ducyk said. “With her knowledge of the county, her deep roots in the community, and her passion for bettering the lives of our residents, she is going to be able to jump in and be a great commissioner."

These current and former commissioners in Washington County join local mayors, including those from Cornelius, Durham, Tigard, and Vancouver, Washington in supporting Pam. “The issues Washington County face, especially when it comes to transportation and housing, are shared across the entire region,” Pam said. “I want to work together with our regional partners to solve the problems District 2 residents face.” In his endorsement of her, Tim Leavitt, the Mayor of Vancouver, said "It has been my pleasure to work with Pam over the years on issues of regional significance, including the growth of jobs, housing, and transportation. Her depth of experience and connections will make her a great commissioner."

Pam’s priorities for Washington County are attainable, diverse housing choices for all of our residents, transportation infrastructure that works, and ensuring we continue to lead the region on providing worker friendly jobs that support families. “I’m humbled by all the support I’ve received so far and will continue to build on this broad base of support in 2018. My supporters are wide-ranging and they demonstrate that I have the ability to work collaboratively and productively. I’m working hard everyday to make sure I can bring this skill set to the Board of Commissioners,” Pam said.
