Representative Jennifer Williamson, House District 36
Why we endorsed Rep. Jennifer Williamson
As House Majority Leader, Rep. Jennifer Williamson serves in an important leadership position. She has also proven her commitment to Oregon students. She is a mom, she spent a decade volunteering in her daughter’s schools, and she has spent time as a volunteer mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
In her questionnaire, Rep. Williamson committed her full support to legislation that works to improve Oregon’s attendance rates. Students who attend school regularly are much more likely to do well in school and to graduate from high school on time, so it’s extremely important that Oregon lawmakers take steps to address this issue.
Rep. Williamson scored a solid 85 percent on the Stand legislative scorecard.
