Monmouth - Paul Evans, Democratic Candidate for Oregon House District 20, yesterday received the endorsement of Stand for Children, an education advocacy group. The organization "identifies local challenges children face" and drafts policy proposals to ensure that disadvantaged students can successfully complete high school and then attend college.

“This endorsement means so much to me,” stated Evans. “As a former school board member, and as somebody who teaches at a community college, I know how vital a quality high school experience can be. I greatly appreciate the work Stand for Children performs. I am very excited about Stand for Children's endorsement.  Stand is a tremendous organization with a passion for helping children and families. I look forward to the next few months with increasing optimism.” 

Stand for Children joins 25 other organizations that have endorsed Evans, including ones from the health care field, agricultural groups, education, and labor.
