First, it has been a great week for the campaign.
The Willamette Week endorsed me, emphasizing that Helm is “calm, balanced and brings a particular skill (his expertise in land-use law) the Legislature needs.”
I’m also honored to see the education community rallying behind me.
Adding to the teachers at the Beaverton Education Association and Oregon Education Association, this week I was endorsed by the Oregon School Employees Association and Beaverton School Board members Mary VanderWeele and Anne Bryan.
I’m receiving this support because they know I care as deeply as they do about the funding and quality of our schools. In Salem, I’ll be a tireless champion for reducing class sizes and restoring lost school days.
But all of that is only possible if we win this election. That is why I’m out every day talking to voters in the community.
We could use your help in this home stretch. Ballots just went in the mail and the election is just a few days away.
We have a big door-knocking canvass this Sunday and many other opportunities to phone bank or go door to door.
It would mean a lot to me if you can volunteer a few hours in the coming weeks. To do so, email Miles on my campaign at Miles @ kenhelm.com.
Thank you to everyone for your support – together we will do this!
