Congressional District 3Delegate Candidate Statements

Aaron Levine

Aaron Levine


I’m Aaron Levine and I’m running for MultCoDems Technology Officer and 3rd CD Delegate. I work in web development with a background in Programming/Data Management, and have been a member of the Technology Committee since January 2017. I’m also captain of the Web Team subcommittee.

Since the last Re-org, Tech/Comm has transformed how MCD operates online and interacts with our fellow constituents. Our achievements include:

– Re-establishing web presence for current generation
– Enhancing voter outreach/education
– Strengthening fundraising efforts
– Encouraging best Tech practices
– Touting our party’s work in the community

While we have “reset” the role of Technology and laid the groundwork for a comprehensive web presence, our work is not done. As Tech Officer, I will:

– Continue to meet technological needs of our party
– Roll out enhanced mobile-friendly website/internal email server
– Utilize Tech to Keep Oregon Blue into the Next Decade
– Support progressive ideals of the party
– Help encourage participation from current and new volunteers
– Implement Best Practices
– Take our technological expertise statewide

The Technology Committee has an ambitious agenda for the next two years. I hope you will vote Aaron Levine for Technology Officer/3rd CD Delegate.

I am a lifelong Portlander, residing in inner Northeast for the past 8 years. In 2018, I challenged Rep. Blumenauer in the Democratic primary, hoping to use that opportunity to nudge our Representative further to the left. It was a great experience, and while campaigning I spent a lot of time meeting with and listening to my neighbors. Even though I don’t have plans to run for that seat again, I am still interested in working to give voice to the concerns and priorities of the people in the 3rd district. I would be grateful for the opportunity to work collaboratively with the Representative’s office, so we can make progress on the issues that matter most to us.

Daniel Goetz


I’m a passionate progressive working to make a difference in the society I live in.

As the District Leader for HD36/27 and as someone who lives in downtown Portland, I’ve seen the problems that inner-city neighborhoods face. I’ve seen the need for a voice to speak for the inner city. The urban poor. The people who don’t get heard because they’re too busy getting by to get involved. Someone needs to speak for us.

At the same time, as a working class child of the Willamette Valley I’ve seen the difficulties faced by our rural communities and their resentment of people who have no understanding of the difficulties they face. Job losses. Education cuts. Dying industries. Lack of health care. Someone needs to speak for us.

I intend to be that someone. I’m running to speak for the voiceless. To work for the exhausted. To shield the powerless. To challenge the comfortable. To upset the status quo. To speak for us.

Politics is about showing up. Please show up with me.

As the Chair of the National Strategy Committee for HCAO-Action, I am already working with Rep. Blumenauer’s office. Becoming a member of the CD3 committee would only strengthen that relationship. Also, I am excited by several strong moves to the left taken by the congressman recently including, but not limited to, his very strong support for Medicare for All. I want to support him as he continues to move in this direction.

Vote Ethan Scarl–CD 3 Delegate
Computer Scientist working to protect our votes

Honest vote-counting is critical to democracy and making the world a better place. My focus is on eliminating the outrageous vulnerabilities of computerized vote-counting with private software.

This is why I am in the DPO’s Election Integrity Caucus, and why
I wrote a bill for 2019 to give Oregon effective auditing. This is in line with the Wyden/Blumenauer “Protecting American Votes and Elections” (PAVE) Act, which should effectively end stolen and rigged federal elections. Supporting PAVE will be a critical test of Democratic federal leadership. I want to continue this work with Congressman Blumenauer as part of the CD 3 delegation.

This has included organizing:
• Conference sessions
• Documentary theater runs
• Panel discussions
• KBOO programs.

I serve on the National Council of the Alliance for Democracy and work with Move To Amend to end the fiction that corporations are people.

The Party passed my resolutions on the National Popular Vote and stopping promotion of nuclear reactors.

I have campaigned for Democrats and progressive causes since 1988, with many hours of canvassing in 2018.

I would be most honored to receive your vote!

I am declaring myself as a candidate for Delegate to the State Central Committee for 2019-20. I have served as alternate and delegate over the last several years and attended all meetings.

I have contributed to the SCC as a member of the State Fairs and Local Events Committee, and represented Multnomah County at the State Fair.

I have served on the Platform and Resolution Committee (PRC) and led the work to develop the Environmental Article of the 2018 Democratic Party Platform. I have met with other members to develop a process for PRC members to research and follow the Legislative Agenda Items through their introduction to passage into law.

I am also declaring myself as a candidate for Delegate to the 3rd Congressional District Committee (3rd CD) for 2019-20. I have served as alternate and delegate over the last several years and attended all meetings.

I have participated in discussions of the 3rd CD and brought forth Resolutions on Security for Social Security which were passed and forwarded to Congressman Blumenauer and the other members of the Congressional Delegation.

I ask for your votes to continue this work. I am a free thinker and open to all that care to contribute to the discussion.

I recently moved from Pennsylvania to Portland last year where I was active in the Party’s State Committee for 25 years. During that time I served 4 years as a County Chair, 16 years Regional Caucus Chair (there are 8), 5 years State Treasurer, and State Chair for 5 months until last June. As a result of those experiences, I’m a firm believer that the Party’s responsibilities and leadership should of course support and work with its elected officials but also maintain its own independence in its administration. The Party is not a tool of elected officials or special interest groups but should have an appropriate place at the table with them so as to advocate for its constituency, the dedicated grassroots Party activists that do the day to day work of communicating about, organizing for, and electing candidates that reflect its goals and ideals. I wish and hope to have the opportunity to support and advocate for those principals as a member of the State Central Committee and promise to if granted the honor and responsibility to serve. I respectively ask for your vote so as to be given the opportunity to do so.

I am running for 3rd CD Delegate because I want a stronger voice in the Democratic party. As a twenty-five year veteran documentary filmmaker and Director of Oregon Doc Camp, a retreat for experienced documentary filmmakers, I have developed strong organizational and leadership skills. Two years ago, I used those skills to co-found Indivisible Portland D3 and to organize and lead many large political meetings and trainings on its behalf.

Now I want to use my leadership and organizational skills to help the Democratic party strengthen Oregon’s safety net beginning with proper funding for our schools. As a parent of an eighteen year old child who has gone through Portland Public Schools, and an active volunteer in both PPS and David Douglas School Districts, I have seen schools that are dramatically underfunded and children that are not getting their needs met. A productive future for our citizens cannot be secured without a proper education.

But schools are just one state institution I want to strengthen. All of our state’s safety nets can be improved dramatically. I am running so I can use my skills to help make our state’s public institutions stronger and more effective for all.

Thank you for showing up and tending to this important party business, and for the many other ways you show up to make the world a better place. Over the past twenty years, I’ve raised two children (now teenagers) and built a business providing health and wellness services to individuals and communities in Portland. During that time, I’ve increasingly gotten involved in supporting progressive issues and candidates. In the past few years, I’ve also gotten more involved in the Democratic Party, first as an appointed PCP and now as an elected PCP this past year. Our children and our planet need us to stand up and work for important issues like addressing climate change, strengthening democracy, fighting for universal health care, making housing accessible and affordable for everyone, assuring opportunities to work and earn a livable income, and providing quality education to all our young people and people in transition. I ask your support as I pledge to continue working for these important issues. Thank you. And thanks also to the many of you (Alissa, Lisa, Ami, Jason, Sara and many many others) who have inspired me, encouraged me and/or endorsed me to run for this leadership position.

I’m a working mom. A millennial. A resident of a neighborhood in southeast Portland that has few sidewalks, lots of young families, and a Fortune 500 Company known for putting significant pollutants into Springwater Creek. If the county party’s goal for the Congressional District Committee is for it to be comprised of “authentic community voices,” well, here I am. Neighborhoods like mine tend to be underrepresented, and I would like to change that.

I believe the work of perfecting our party never ceases. As a lifelong Oregonian, new father, teacher, and member of a religious minority I know that our future depends on showing that the alternative to our unfit “President” is a Party that is inclusive, transparent, and accountable.

That’s why my first term on the CD3 Committee included supporting a set of diverse, non-usual-suspect candidates for state party committees; rewriting our bylaws to make our proceedings fairer; and making public-facing social media posts to solicit feedback from the Democrats I represent. I was one of only a few members to attend every meeting. These accomplishments represent promises I made two years ago and kept.

If you choose to re-elect me, I will continue to prioritize sending a diverse slate to our state committees. Our chair is a presidential elector, and I will ensure that person understands the seriousness of that role. I will increase the committee’s commitment to engagement with Rep. Blumenauer and his office, holding him accountable to the principles that animate our Party.

I am proud to have the endorsement of Rep. Alissa Keny-Guyer and HD-46 Leader Lisa Morrison, and I would be honored to have your vote.

I’m eager to make the incredibly progressive Multnomah County Democrats platform into a reality. I’m ready for Healthcare for All, increasing the minimum wage, a New Green Deal, and making real gains toward a more equitable society. With some much needed new blood in the House of Representatives fighting back the the president’s destructive agenda, it’s the perfect time to work with Rep. Blumenauer in enacting a visionary agenda that raises the bar for working people and those most vulnerable among us, not just for the corporations and the top 1%.

I served on the 3rd Congressional District Committee in 2017 and 2018 and was elected to the Democratic Party of Oregon Budget Committee, where I was appointed parliamentarian. I would like to be re-elected to the 3rd CD Committee. I am a second year at Lewis and Clark Law School, with a focus in Indian Law. I also work part time as a private math tutor in Lake Oswego. I am the president of the board of the Tryon Life Community Farm, which recently became a fiscal sponsor for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women USA.

If re-elected, I intend to focus on leveraging local party resources to promote legislation that helps Native Communities on both the State and National levels. For example, legislation is needed to close the jurisdictional gap on reservations that allows non-Indians escape punishment for violent crimes against Native people.

Kyle Huth

Kyle Huth


I am running for CD3 because it is our job to make sure Blumenauer and our elected officials are held accountable to fight for our values. We live in one of the most progressive districts in the country and we should be national examples of how grassroots organizing and progressive leadership is the path forward to healthcare for all, clean energy jobs, and getting big money out of politics.

I have been a PCP since 2016, currently serve as District Leader for House District 42 in Southeast Portland, and also work on the Rules and Women’s committees. Born and raised in Corvallis, I have lived and worked as an energy efficiency engineer in Portland since 2009.

I believe there are a lot of people that feel like they have stood and watched from the sidelines too long and now are ready to step up and make a change. This is the time to use this momentum to bring people together, to welcome new voices and show that we are the party that represents the people, and demonstrate our progressive vision as an example for the rest of the country.

Hi! I’m Leigha LaFleur and I am running for reelection to the Congressional District Three Committee. In the last session of the Committee I was elected Chair by the Committee members. Under my leadership we developed a positive relationship with Rep. Blumenauer and his office to support his advocacy for an improved Farm Bill, encouraging movement towards universal healthcare, and changes to the tax structure to benefit working people. We did candidate support work, helping the campaigns of Janelle Bynum, Rachel Prusak, and Jamie McLeod-Skinner. The Committee also took a special interest in the climate and environment, learning much about the work of the Oregon state legislature on the topic and hosting Renew Oregon to discuss the Clean Energy Jobs Act. If reelected to the Committee, I plan on running for Chair again. I look forward to continuing and expanding upon the work we have accomplished. I hope to implement things we learned in the last session of the Committee and continue to help make the CD3 Committee a more effective tool for assisting Rep. Blumenauer and supporting the people of the District. I would be honored to have your vote.

VOTE FOR LINDA LIVERMORE FOR CD3 DELEGATE

Currently Treasurer for Multnomah County Democrats
PCP HD42
CPA, LMT, self employed
Bernie PDX and Portland Raging Grannie

I’m for a Green New Deal, job training, clean energy, healthcare for all, free college education, tax reform, and rerouting resources away from excessive military, prison/industrial complex and tax giveaways to corporations and the wealthy. I support a system that values and benefits all, everyone on the planet, no exceptions. Let’s work together to transform the political system and be the change we want to see.

I am a life-long Democrat and grew up in Gresham, Oregon. I graduated from the University of Oregon, BS in Economics. I balance financial savvy and frugality with a generous and thoughtful nature. I have additional training in Non-violent Communication and Permaculture, concepts that influence my work and interactions. Progressive change can come with fiscal responsibility. I believe there are plenty of resources and funds but they need to be shared and used wisely. As a PCP, I have distributed slate cards, phone banked and participated in community outreach. I have served as Treasurer for Multnomah County Democrats 2017-2018. I’m ready to serve as your CD3 Delagate.

I ask for your vote.

Many influences have shaped me over my lifetime, none so dramatically as the policies and programs fought for and implemented by Democrats. Medicaid, food stamps, student grants and loans, safe and legal abortion, clean air, water, and food, union wages and benefits, bankruptcy, first time homeownership assistance, public education, and public health programs have each played a role in helping me and my family thrive. In turn I now have the ability to give back, so that those who come after me have access to this same support.

As a PCP, Neighborhood Leader, and District Leader in HD46, I activate and mobilize Democrats to vote, to weigh in on legislation and policy, and to participate in Multnomah County Dems. Together we are the framework that allows Democrats to work together to shape the future of our community well before the ballots drop. I’m now running to be a delegate to the CD3 Committee, where I will be your advocate for our progressive platform goals that are within Congressman Blumenauer’s power to achieve. Our job as I see it is to set and maintain the expectation that when the Congressman speaks and acts in Washington, he speaks and acts for us.

Friends,

On Saturday, January 13th, MCD PCP’s will choose how they want to keep the DPO moving ahead, and which delegates are best equipped to lead that progress. All candidates should explain what they intend to do at SCC, so this is what I am about for 2019-2021:

-Collaborating with the DPO to address how deeply broken our campaign finance laws are and developing a plan for positive change.
-Collaborating with fellow delegates to end the undemocratic system of super-delegates.
-Collaborating with fellow delegates to open our Primary to NAV’s, to encourage voter engagement while instilling public trust.
-Collaborating with fellow delegates to insure that ALL DPO Rules and Policies are put into writing. No more “moving the goal posts.”
-Collaborating with fellow delegates to increase SCC oversight of DPO coordinated campaign activities and the VAN.
-Collaborating with the Delegation and the Election Integrity Caucus regarding piloting a ranked choice-type voting in the Democratic Primary.

As a part of the SCC Delegation of Multnomah County, I pledge to collaborate with you for a new path forward, one that is open, transparent, inclusive, ACCOUNTABLE and strengthens our Democracy.

I humbly ask for your support and your vote.

In solidarity,

Lisa Wolf

I am Marc Koller; I have been a democrat for 40 years. I am running for the position of Chair of the Multnomah Democrats. In this most recent election I ran as a progressive independent for the 3rd U.S. Congressional District. I ran to give voters a choice, and support of a progressive agenda.

I believe the future of the party should move beyond simply supporting candidates just because they have a “D” next to their name. The agenda must be more than simply defeating Republicans.

Our Party must build a coalition of Democrats that supported Bernie, first time voters, millennials, worried seniors, union workers, people of color, the LGBTQ community, Independents, Progressives, Non-Affiliated voters, Green Party and Republicans that are disgusted with the hate and divisiveness of the current administration. This powerful coalition represents an overwhelming majority of Americans.

I spent over 30 years in the training and development field working with executives, managers, private and public employees helping them build strong teams, through delegation, consensus building and strong communication skills. I understand that I have much to learn about the workings of the party, but I feel I also have much to offer. Thank you for your support.

Hurrah! Democrats hold the majority in our House of Representatives.
I’m encouraged by the progress Earl Blumenauer and the other members can make:
Climate Action – needs to be a basic element of every other action. We have no time to waste.
Regaining our Republic – Voting rights; ending gerrymandering and other cheats, ending $$ as speech, holding this corrupt administration accountable.
Protecting opportunity – Healthcare for all; education without debt; labor and fair wages; a roof over our heads.

I’m a PCP and HD Leader for outer SE districts 48 and 51. If ReElected to CD3, I’d be honored to continue to share our voter’s concerns, question our Representative and report back progress from DC.

I would be delighted to represent the community as a Congressional District Delegate. I live and work in Portland and would like to speak for people who may often go unseen. I am a PCP for House District 42 and serve on two community Boards. As a renter and private school teacher, I understand the struggles of living close to financial margins and have spoken to many neighbors in diverse situations. Walking through the world without the lens of privilege makes a person see problems and possibilities differently. I would like the opportunity to meet with my community and my Representative to explore ways to make Portland life continue to be safe, inclusive, inspired and sustainable for all residents.

As the blue wave swept away 40 GOP house seats and into Democratic control in Washington, and hundreds more at the state level, it’s important that we have representatives who listen to those who elected them. I am a sophomore at Portland State University, and many people in my generation (Gen-Z), are being bombarded with college tuition fees and healthcare costs which prevent us from becoming financially independent and reaching our full potential. Too many of my friends (myself included), have had to put our mental and physical well-being on the backburner to afford basic necessities. We deserve to live comfortably like generations previous, and as the gap between the 99% and the 1% continues to expand, we have to address these issues now. I want to support our elected leaders in becoming fierce advocates for medicare-for-all, tuition-free public college, police brutality, getting corporate money out of politics, mental health reform, climate change, and much more. To quote Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: “It does not take a hundred years to do this, it takes political courage.” Overall, change will not happen in our country unless ordinary people stand up for what is right, and that is exactly why I’m running.

My vision and mission are to create and advocate policies for Puerto Rico and the Pacific Island Territorials, affected by the Jones Act.

This Act from 1920 was imposed by United State Congress without equal representation and with the purpose to control minority population of the islands.

My goal is to amend the Jones Act to create equal opportunities for all citizens in these geographic locations.

Citizens of Puerto Rico and the Pacific Island Territorials should have the same right as mainland citizens.

That includes equal human rights, citizen rights, economic and education rights and political voting rights.

I come from a working class background and since graduating college in 2014, I have consistently been working poor. The downward mobility I’ve experienced is attributable to a number of factors; my Blackness and maleness, I come from slaves, and generations of my family that preceded me were shut out of wealth and asset building opportunities. We currently live in an America where there is no room for people or groups of people for that matter, who lack material wealth. I would like to change that. Among many other things, poor, working, and middle class Oregonians need radical advocacy and politics that will increase labor unions and strengthen the preexisting ones, tax reform that favors the bottom 50 percent, top-notch universal healthcare, and affordable housing. I have come to find that most Oregonians want what most Americans want—stability. They want a living wage, the agency to access all that America has to offer, and a secure and enjoyable retirement. I believe people should advocate and do politics from their wealth position. If elected, I will be a fierce advocate for Oregonians who are at the bottom.

I am asking for your support in continuing the very important work as an officer in the Party as Vice Chair 1 and as a CD Delegate. In 2017, I promised to be a bridge builder and I have done just that. I have used my background in Instructional Design to create training for PCP’s that was fresh and relevant to the role. I helped expand our reach by forming the First Democratic group in the Pacific Northwest committed to Social Justice. I created the first functioning Women’s Committee in the last decade and launched the study group that will become our very own Young Democrat Club.

I spoke truth to power in resolutions I wrote on expunging marijuana misdemeanors and addressing police brutality. I became a part of a functional Administration and Executive team. I helped to revise the bylaws for CD 3.
We have come a long way, but we have a long way to go. I see more that I can do to aid our Party. Facing 2020, we need experienced officers that can build bridges in every part of the city and I am a bridge builder. Please vote for me to continue our progress forward.

I would like to submit my name for consideration for both CD and SCC. This past couple of years I have served on both committees as a delegate while also serving as a PCP. Both committees have been rewarding assignments. This has placed me in a position to interact with like-minded Democrats around the state. I presently serve on the Credentials Committee as a member at large from the 3rd CD. My union membership in SEIU, CAPE Committee enables me to work in unison with the Democratic Party throughout the country. In addition, I am a member of NAACP, WNA, NECN, and the Urban League all of which coordinate activities that complement one another’s missions.

I believe my participation on both committees has served to be a mutual asset to the DPO and MultDems.
