State lawmaker excels at communication with community and providing reliable information during trying times

Every once in a while an elected representative emerges who exemplifies the highest standards in what we need in a state legislator.

Such a person is Anna Williams, who in her first term as state representative in House District 52. She has kept citizens in Corbett, Cascade Locks, Hood River County, Government Camp, and Sandy well-informed on issues important to our rural and small town communities.

Any of you who have attended her town halls — both in person and virtually — know how knowledgeable she is about the issues, responsive to specific questions or comments, and clear about where she stands. I have found her to be quite responsive to emails, giving detailed explanations of actions she has taken or plans to take; where she disagrees, she gives sound reasons.

She has been a welcome source of reliable information on Oregon's response to COVID-19 and on the recent wildfires. She took quick action on our concerns about armed checkpoints in the Corbett community. She is one of those rare legislators who views herself appropriately as the representative of all people in District 52, not just those who voted for her.

Your vote for Anna Williams is a vote for wisdom, fairness, and well-being for all Oregonians.
