Rep. Paul Evans shows concern for constituents during water crisis

Salem’s recent water crisis has underscored the importance of having somebody with leadership experience in the Legislature.

I have been very impressed with how Rep. Paul Evans, District 20, which includes Monmouth, Independence and a portion of Salem, has responded to the situation.

He has done a good job of researching the causes of the water problem, and proposing possible solutions.

More importantly, he listens to the concerns of his constituents and acts accordingly, taking actions like providing water to people in need.

None of this comes as a surprise to the people in House District 20. He is a strong voice in Salem for our interests and concerns. I have been particularly pleased with his commitment to pay equity and women’s rights.

He has worked hard to level the playing field for women and working families. He has the experience, the credibility, and influence necessary to make sure people have the opportunity to succeed. Paul Evans listens. Paul Evans gets the job done.
