Elizabeth’s first foray into politics as a profession was in 2007 when she worked for then-Labor Commissioner Dan Gardner. From BOLI Elizabeth moved into policy and lobbying work, focusing mainly on health care issues. She also led the fight in 2008 against a poorly crafted open primary initiative. Most recently she worked a brief stint as Finance Director to elect Bill Bradbury as Governor. Pre-political life Elizabeth owned a bar and promotions company (in Hood River) and finished her doctoral exams in Political Science with an emphasis on Public Law and American Politics. Elizabeth has more cats than she would like to admit, loves sunshine and believes with all her might that the Democratic Party needs to embrace progressivism.
