Cheri Helt

For State Representative

“As a working mom, local small business owner and longtime education leader in our community, I understand what makes Bend unique. I’d be honored to continue serving you as your State Representative. I believe in being fiscally responsible, socially inclusive, environmentally conscious and politically independent – working across party lines, rejecting rigid right-left extremes and finding common ground for positive change. Please join our campaign and put progress ahead of partisan politics.”

Great endorsement!!! ❤️

Martin Luther King Jr. was only 39 years old when he was assassinated. It has been almost 52 years since we lost him. Yet even today we have to look no further than his speeches, writings and quotes to feel the relevancy, inspiration and magnitude his leadership still provides today. ... See MoreSee Less

And this one:

Rep Helt, here are a couple other quotes to also consider.

Words to consider, Cheri Helt for State Representative:

MLK Junior wants to remind you that segregation of anyone is bad. You believe in killing homeschools and charters. You also believe in segregation based on health status. These two issues are a huge concern for your constituents and I hope you change your tune.

If you truly believe this, then you need to be working to remove our racist President and to root out white supremacy that still exists, to this day, in Bend.

Your silence in the face of the leader of your party repeatedly engaging in clear and blatant racism, in the face of step after step towards authoritarianism and fascism, in the face of children forcibly separated from their parents and locked in cages in appalling conditions, in the face of climate denialism even as the world burns, and in the face of him bribing a foreign leader whose country is under the threat of violence... makes you complicit. The Republican Party no longer stands for what it once did. Is this all worth it? Does reading all of this make you feel terrible? There is a choice. You can stand up and be a local hero. Be a true leader and help others see how wrong and broken all of this is. Or you can continue to hold your tongue in the hopes of all this passing over (and getting re-elected), and simply stand by and watch the country you love continue to fall deeper into darkness.
