A proven leader for Multnomah County
I’m Jessica Vega Pederson, and I’m running for Multnomah County Chair because everyone in our community deserves safe, stable housing, clean air and water, and the chance to learn and thrive. I first ran for office ten years ago as a young mom driven by a desire to make sure all kids, no matter their zip code, have access to connected sidewalks, safe housing, and educational opportunity. I still believe that all of us deserve this and through the work I’ve done in these ten years, I know we can accomplish great things. As your next County Chair, I am ready to take on the challenges we face and work together for a thriving Multnomah County.
