Tootie Smith anounces bid for Schraders Congressional seat

Clackamas County Commissioner Tootie Smith recently announced plans to run for Congress in Oregon’s 5th district against Democrat Kurt Schrader at a recent kickoff event beginning in Marion County at Aurora Aviation,

At several appearances last week, Smith said, “I’m running for Congress because Kurt Schrader said on local television that the president misled him on the healthcare bill, a bill he voted for but did not read or understand. I will work to repeal and replace Obamacare. And I will take full responsibility for all my votes.”

“We’ve seen a huge decline economically, and we can’t continue down this unsustainable path of spending more than we take in,” stated Tootie.“It’s time that Oregonians have a representative in Congress who is committed to getting us back on track.

Smith was first elected to the Clackamas County Board of Commissioners in 2012. Prior to being elected to the board, she was a state representative from 2001 to 2005.
