20. Tell Tina Kotek What You Think

KotekPortland House Representative Tina Kotek just made national history when she was sworn in as the first openly lesbian House Speaker in the United States.  She has represented the 44th District, covering North and Northest Portland, since 2006 following a career in public service and nonprofit work.

In addition to LGBT rights, her key issues have included equitable housing and social services for all. As Speaker, her list of statewide concerns has just exploded.  What is her new role? She recently told The Oregonian, “Being speaker is like being a referee. I remind people why we’re here and what we hope to achieve. It’s about moving Oregon forward.”

What issues do you want to make sure Speaker Kotek knows about?  Tell her all about it at the Speaker website.
