Jules Walters for Mayor of West Linn

 

I am proud to announce my candidacy for Mayor of West Linn.

In 2018 I ran for city council on a platform that reflects what I value most about our community: Schools, Parks, and Safety.

Supporting our schools means finding ways to provide educational opportunities for all kids, whether they are going to school in person or studying from home. It also means partnering with our School Board and engaging in a dialogue about diversity in our children’s curriculum.

Our parks have become a welcome respite for families who have been confined at home, and providing safe and socially distanced programs for our community is a top priority for the parks department and our local library.  

And safety for our city means a safe and welcoming place for all people, regardless of race, religion, gender, or sexual identity. I have been proud to oversee the creation of a police oversight task force, which is also the most diverse working group in our city’s history. 

As councilor I have focused on building community partnerships. I have worked hard as your representative to support our parks programs, collaborate with the school district,, and to hold our police officers accountable. I have been proud to represent West Linn on the Multi-City Equity Summit, and as liaison to the WLWV School District. In my position on the I-205 Tolling Diversion Committee, I am defending West Linn from predatory tolling. Progress has been made, but there is more work to be done, and I am ready to continue that work. 

Now more than ever, we need our city’s leadership to represent all of West Linn.

I am ready to be the voice for all.
