A message from Val:

Growing up, my family instilled within me a deep respect for public service. I was taught that you leave things a little better than you found them. We worked hard for every opportunity— but we also knew we had to hold the ladder and give the next person the opportunity to climb.

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, 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.

I feel truly fortunate to call Oregon my home and I’m honored to represent my neighbors in West Eugene and Junction City in the State House.

What makes our state special is that we strive to give people a fair shot and not leave anyone behind. Those are the same values I learned growing up. Now, they guide me every day in my work in Salem.

It has been a great honor to represent the people in West Eugene and Junction City for the past 7 years in the Oregon House. I have never loved a job more and am incredibly happy to be handing over the reins to such a strong, intelligent and competent woman as Julie Fahey, our new State Representative.

I will continue fighting for affordable housing and adequate mental health care for those who need it, including ensuring that the Junction City Psychiatric Hospital remains open and able to serve those people who need a hospital level of psychiatric care. I will use this page as opposed to my personal facebook page to highlight political issues.

In my capacity as a board member of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon, Square One Villages and The Street Trust (formerly the Bicycle Transportation Alliance) I will work to advocate for women’s reproductive health access, affordable housing and safe bicycle and pedestrian transportation options. I will continue to work with the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics at the University of Oregon to brings scholars and activists to Oregon to carry on the Wayne Morse tradition of intellectual independence and courageous principled leadership. I will be spending time supporting the local organizations that make such a difference locally, specifically the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Mom’s Demand Action, Sponsors Inc (providing post prison re-entry mentorship, housing and employment opportunities), Occupy Medical and finally, I will now have time to be more involved in local community projects through the Eugene Airport Rotary.

The bottom line is that I will continue to be engaged and have appreciated the support I have had from my constituents. I am proud to have been able to have taken strong stands that while not always popular, made a difference in the lives of the people in Lane County and the state of Oregon. ... See MoreSee Less
