I am Teresa Alonso Leon, and I am proud to call this place home. I grew up here in Woodburn, and was the first in my family to graduate from college, with a degree from Western Oregon University. As a way of giving back to my community, I serve on the Woodburn City Council so everyone in our community has a voice in their government.
I have dedicated my life to helping students access quality and affordable education. Currently, I run Oregon’s GED program and help students find their path to careers, college, and job skills training programs. I am running for state representative to help get Salem’s priorities straight and create a government that is more accountable. I will put small businesses and working families first, by making sure big out-of- state corporations pay their fair share. I will work to reduce the influence of big money in politics to ensure government spending goes toward investing in public schools, making college more affordable, and building strong job training programs so businesses can grow and Oregonians can prosper. I will make sure Oregonians who work hard can achieve the American Dream, just like me.
