First Lady Cylvia Hayes
I feel blessed to live in Oregon. I love our state's warm, friendly people; magnificent mountains, deserts, and
shorelines; and our proud history of pioneering innovation. It's an honor to serve as First Lady.
In this role, I am working to help make Oregon an even better place to live by focusing on an issue with which I have personal experience: overcoming the systemic challenges of poverty. It is unacceptable that in our state – with its rich natural resources and human ingenuity – so many people are struggling to make ends meet. It is time to turn this around, maximize our potential, and make Oregon a more prosperous place to live and do business.
I urge you to learn more about The Oregon Prosperity Agenda. The goal is to build an economy that works for everyone, an economy that is clean and sustainable and creates opportunities for people – regardless of income, ethnicity, geography or gender – to achieve economic security and prosperity.
It’s a bold undertaking and a heavy lift and we need all hands to help stand it up.
