Established in May 2014, Women Voters for Paul Evans (WVPE) provides a venue for teachers, business owners, community leaders, and others who support Evans’ bid for the District 20 House legislative seat. “Paul Evans supports issues that are important to all Oregonians, especially those of us who call the Willamette Valley home. But, I created this group because of his support for items of special importance to a single mother like me and to other women. He supports a woman’s right to choose, equal pay, and strengthening local public schools like the one my son attends,” explains Michele Dishong McCormack.
Group members are supporting Evans’ campaign by hosting house parties, canvassing neighborhoods, and offering other grass roots support.
Since day one, Paul Evans has never been shy about his promise to fight for and defend women's rights, and organizations around the state know it. That's why many of his endorsers include:
End Violence Against Women PAC
Stand for Children
NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon
The League of Conservation Voters
Oregon Working Families Party
“An impressive group of women is involved in this group. To have the best and brightest offering their time and treasure to our campaign effort is encouraging. They’ve been a great resource for us,” said Paul Evans.
