I’m running because I’m a creative and collaborative problem solver. I’m also running because like you, I’m fed up with the long list of issues America has but doesn’t seem to solve.

for Congress."

KIPPERlyn sinclair (SHE/HER)

Hillsboro City Councilor

"Michael Jonas is a consistent, passionate force for our community. For years he has dedicated his time and work to helping others get ahead and secure the resources they need to thrive. His empowerment of small and local business is exemplary and we can always depend on Michael to speak out for what's right. He has the strength, maturity, and experience to effectively represent Portland on the national stage."

Ciara Pressler (SHE/HER)

Entrepreneur & Small Business Advocate

"Michael Jonas is a major supporter of LGBTQIA2S, BIPOC and women business owners. I was fortunate to meet him through a women's business organization. He has been an incredible supporter as I was working to uplift Downtown Portland through the arts."


Community arts advocate

"I truly believe that Michael has the personality, intellect, experience, tenacity, temperament, and background to not only win his bid for Congress, but to SUCCEED when he gets there. Earl Blumenaur built a legacy, and Michael can, and will carry that legacy in to the future while also creating a legacy of his own for our beautiful state."

Rosalind mccallard (she/her)

co-founder snackrilege vegan foods 

"Michael is clearly here for the benefit of all of humankind. He is the epitome of a good community steward and I have full trust in him to make well-educated decisions that result in the best outcome for the

greatest good."

Kellen moody (they/them)

Owner, Alluvium Gatherings and Place to B

"Michael has shown up as a strong supporter for the black community every time he was asked, without ever once asking for anything in return. He's shown up to support the black business community in both an educational capacity and professional capacity. I proudly and wholeheartedly endorse Michael for Congress."

Evann Goss-Lemelle (He/HIm)

Executive Director, The Black American Chamber of Commerce

"I know Michael Jonas personally and professionally and he has been a constant supporter and advocate for mental health and wellness. He is one of the smartest, most compassionate and understanding people I know.
