I feel truly fortunate to call Oregon my home. We came to Oregon in 1999 because of the quality of life and reputation of the school district. It’s been a great place for my husband Stephen and I to live, work and raise our two children.
Our state is a special place filled with fiercely independent, honest, hard-working and open-minded people.
Oregonians don’t follow. We lead the way. Whether it’s in higher education, new technology, agricultural development, creative entrepreneurship, medical research, voter participation or our commitment to equality—we’re always on the cutting edge.
For the last 6 years, it’s been my honor and privilege to represent my neighbors in West Eugene and Junction City in the State House. Together, we’ve worked to make Oregon a better place to work, get an education, start a business and enjoy the natural beauty of our forests, rivers and coast.
My work as Majority Leader for the House Democrats has been very rewarding. Now, I’m ready to take on a new challenge to serve all the people of Oregon as your next Secretary of State.
I’m running for Secretary of State to:
- Reduce barriers to voting and make it easier for every eligible Oregonian to have access to the ballot;
- Use the audits department to improve government transparency while protecting critical services;
- Be a champion for small businesses and working people in Oregon; and
- Bring a renewed commitment to improving ethics and accountability.
I’ll keep working to preserve what makes Oregon special and ensure it’s a state where we strive to give people a fair shot and not leave anyone behind. I’m excited to start this next journey. I hope you’ll stand with me. I'd be honored to have your support to become Oregon's next Secretary of State.
Super Bowl Sunday is just around the corner and I still haven’t decided who I want to come out on top. The Broncos took out my beloved Patriots in the AFC Championship, so I want to know who Team Hoyle thinks will win.

We’ve seen the impact of Citizens United here in Oregon where we have some of the most expensive campaigns in the country. We need to fix this problem and we need to fix it now! This session I’m excited to champion House Joint Resolution 205, a constitutional amendment that would allow for contribution limits in Oregon.

As I head into the legislative session for 35 days, I have to take a moment to recognize my incredible campaign staff. In the past 3 months we have traveled over 9000 miles throughout this great state, talked to hundreds of new friends and have out paced our opponents in every aspect of this campaign. I am very lucky to have such a dedicated group of people working by my side and I hope you get a chance to meet them. Our office is at 12th and Division in PDX, next to the Double Dragon. Come on by, meet the team, find out more about our campaign, autograph the ping pong table and meet Gus the campaign puppy. #TeamHoyle #Grateful #InItToWinIt ... See MoreSee Less
As I travel around Oregon talking to voters, one of their major concerns is about money in politics and what I will do as Secretary of State to help fix the problem. This is a time when we should be focused on doing the work of the people and not raising money for an election, and I hope my colleagues will join me in not accepting donations throughout the legislative session. #GetMoneyOut #StandWithVal #ImWithHer ...
