BEAVERTON, OR (February 27, 2014) – Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (OR-1) has filed her candidacy for reelection to the U.S. Congress. A Washington County Democrat, Congresswoman Bonamici is currently serving her first full term. “It’s been an honor to serve the constituents of the First Congressional District over the last two years. There is a lot of work still to be done, and I am asking for support today so I can continue my work for Oregonians,” stated Rep. Bonamici.
Suzanne Bonamici is seeking the support of voters across Oregon’s diverse First Congressional District, which includes Washington, Yamhill, Columbia, and Clatsop counties and parts of Multnomah County.
“I will continue my work to build the economy and stand up for seniors, veterans, working families, and those who are still seeking employment.

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Senate’s passage of a comprehensive immigration reform bill.
“The Senate’s bipartisan immigration reform legislation demonstrates what can happen when both parties work together in good faith. This bill contains a number of commonsense proposals to put our immigration policy back on sound footing. A bipartisan coalition in the House stands ready to take up this complicated issue, but so far efforts have been stalled.
“House leadership should allow debate and a vote on the Senate bill soon. Although the bill is not perfect, the legislative process is one of negotiation and compromise.
“Over the past few months, I’ve talked with leaders from the business, labor, agriculture, and immigrant communities, as well as countless constituents concerned about our current immigration system. It’s abundantly clear that we need comprehensive immigration reform. I will continue to make the case to my colleagues that our communities and our economy will benefit if we send a comprehensive, bipartisan bill to the President’s desk this year.”
