McLain will seek re-election

Democrat from Forest Grove wants a second term in House District 29


REP. SUSAN MCLAINRep. Susan McLain (D-Hillsboro) has filed for re-election to her seat as representative for Oregon District 29.

During her first term, she advocated for more funding for classrooms and for transportation projects in HD 29, as well as working to pass policies like paid sick leave and the Farm to School program that helps bring nutritious, high quality, local food to students at school.

“Though we accomplished an enormous amount for working families this year, I know that there is more to be done,” McLain said.

“We must find ways to make meaningful investments in education, improve the roads we use every day, support the creation of good paying jobs and help businesses continue to succeed.

“I am running again because everyone in our community deserves to have a voice in Salem,” McLain added.

House District 29 encompasses west Hillsboro, Cornelius and Forest Grove.

The primary election is scheduled for May 17, 2016.
