Jefferson Smith, the founder of the Bus Project, is running for State Representative in House District 47. The district includes a big chunk of the outer east side of Portland (map). The seat is presently held by Rep. Jeff Merkley.
I am honored to be running for the Oregon State House to represent District 47. With strong community focus and a lot of hard work, we can make some real change: ever-better schools, improved health care, a stronger and fairer economy, broader home ownership and a system that works better for people.
