Family and Community Centered

Anthony was the first person in his family to graduate high school and college. He knows the value of a dollar and that too many families are struggling with the rising costs of housing, healthcare and childcare. In the legislature, Anthony will address the cost of living, so families can focus less on getting by and more on building a better future.

Raised in this district – attending schools in Woodburn, Gervais, Brooks, and Salem/Keizer – Anthony knows our communities.

Investing in Education and Economic Opportunity

Our children are our future. As a father of three, and lifelong advocate for public education, Anthony has led initiatives to provide additional funding for K-12 schools and classrooms. In Salem, he will strongly support public schools, create more pathways to college, and invest in skills training programs.

“Anthony is a leader who can proudly represent and reflect HD 22. As the Chair of the Woodburn School Board, he led the district through some of the toughest times in the history of public education. I look forward to watching his impact on this district and the state of Oregon” – Representative Teresa Alonso Leon

Accessible and Affordable Healthcare

With firsthand experience navigating a complex healthcare industry through a family crisis, Anthony will fight for Oregonians to have access to quality and affordable healthcare.

Anthony and his wife Yadira live in Woodburn with their three daughters.
