Today, State Senator Chip Shields announced he is not running for re-election in 2016. We're sad to lose the Senator's strong leadership in many issues that are important to Oregonians of all colors.

We're excited that Rep. Lew Frederick will run for Senate District 22.

Having Oregon leaders reflect the people they serve is a good thing. 

We know that Oregon's diverse communities need to be better represented in our legislature. Color PAC believes HD-43 is a critical district in helping achieve this goal. We hope the powers-that-be give diverse communities the time and space for our community leaders to emerge.
