I’m writing today to encourage voters to support Barbara Fontaine, Democrat for House District 55. Barbara is a retired federal employee who believes that the government should serve the people. She is a Northwest native with family ties to pioneer-era Central Oregon. She worked as a wildland firefighter to put herself through Oregon State University, where she earned a BS in Forest Management.

House District 55 needs a representative willing to seek solutions to complex problems. Barbara won’t walk away from those tough issues as our current representative did immediately after being appointed to her seat.

Barbara will work hard for climate change action, environmental restoration and protection and for our public lands and water. Her 30-year career with the USDA Forest Service on the Ochoco National Forest has given her a unique understanding of our needs when it comes to the preservation of public lands. She supports green jobs, rural internet access and healthcare for all. Find out more on her website, fontaineforhd55.com.

Please join me in voting for Barbara Fontaine for HD55!
