Miriam G. Cummins
Miriam, a mother of two children who attend public school, is a proud advocate for HD15 parents and students, Latinx families and underrepresented communities. As an immigrant herself, Miriam was born in Zamora, Michoacán, Mexico, Miriam grew up believing and working towards the American Dream. Now as a mother and wife, she is imparting those values to her children. She also understands the value of hard work and starting from the bottom. After seeing a need for minority representation and the beginnings of her family growing (with the birth of her son), Miriam obtained her US Citizenship in 2016. That led to her to run for School Board in 2019, where she won and serves as Linn Benton Lincoln ESD Board of Directors.
Miriam is here for the people and she has made a commitment to ensure:
*Quality Education: All children deserve an equitable education.
*Affordable Living For All: Everyone should have access to a safe, affordable home - and wages and health care benefits to provide for their families.
*Unemployment Benefits: She will put the people first and fight to make sure that Oregonians get every unemployment benefit that is owed to them.
*Early Childhood Care & Education: We know how important those early years are, and every child needs access to affordable care that sets them up for success.
Miriam believes that House District 15 needs a strong leader that will advocate, represent, and do their due diligence. It is important that we hold accountability, and as a State Representative, the duty is to show up at legislation, whether you agree or disagree with the bill, to assure representation of District 15.
As a neighbor, friend and community member of District 15, your voice needs to be heard.
