On this month’s episode of The Voice of Oregon’s Workers we talked with Melissa Busch, a registered nurse, union member, and candidate for the Oregon Senate in Senate District 16. Melissa is running to represent communities across the North Coast and the Lower Columbia River areas, including Scappoose, Astoria, Seaside, Tillamook and Warren where she lives with her family. She’s a graduate of the Oregon Labor Candidate School, a unique program which provides union members with the skills they need to run for office.
Races like Melissa’s are of the utmost importance to Oregon’s workers. We need to elect champions who will fight for policies that put working families ahead and who will defend the progress we have made in building a fair and just economy for Oregon’s workers. Melissa is one of those champions, and we’re proud to feature her on our podcast!
