Welcome! I’m Julie Fahey and I’m running to represent the communities of West Eugene, Bethel, and Junction City as the next State Representative from House District 14. We are a community of hard workers, and I want Oregon to be a place where everyone who works hard has a fair shot to succeed in life, regardless of their background.
I believe we’re headed in the right direction as a state, and I am excited about the recent work the legislature has done around expanding economic opportunity for working families. But the reality is that many families in our community are still struggling, and there’s still more we need to do. And I believe I can make a difference. I’ve spent my 15-year career in the private sector helping businesses pay their workers fairly and making companies great places for employees to work. That perspective will be important as we continue to think about what kind of place we want Oregon to be, for both workers and businesses.
I’m proud to be a lifelong Democrat and advocate for policies that strengthen the middle class. I grew up in a small town and saw firsthand the impact that changing economic realities had on our community. I also saw the things that mattered most in helping working people in our community succeed – a high-quality education system, including robust career and technical education programs; good living wage jobs; strong labor unions; and equal access to health care.
I’m committed to working hard for our schools, working families, and the small businesses that help Oregon’s economy thrive. I will fight to defend a woman’s right to choose and ensure access to reproductive health care. I will support crucial efforts to protect our environment for future generations. I will be a tireless voice against discrimination in all its forms.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about my campaign, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I’m ready to get to work making our community an even better place to live, and I hope you’ll join me.
