Meet Jules Bailey

Jules BaileyMultnomah County Commissioner Jules Bailey believes that effective policies and programs can help solve social challenges. He has been a strong advocate for progressive values and policies that improve the lives of working families. As a Multnomah County commissioner, Jules will continue fighting for programs that cut costs and save the county money while protecting our most vulnerable citizens. He will make sure county programs have clear, measurable goals, and make sure we're meeting them. And Jules will build on his work for cleaner air, safer streets, and solutions to poverty, homelessness, and mental illness. He is also a champion for the arts.

Jules Bailey grew up in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Southeast Portland, close to the district that he now represents as a commissioner. He graduated from Lincoln High School and Lewis and Clark College and earned a master's degree from Princeton University. Learn more about Jules.

It’s my first week on the job as Multnomah County Commissioner for District 1, and I’m already digging into some of the big issues confronting our county.

This week I’m meeting with fellow commissioners to map out priorities, hearing from constituents, and getting to work. I’ll be looking for ways to create good jobs in Multnomah County, build healthy communities, and help those most in need. And I’ve got a copy of the budget on my desk, which I’ll be going through with a fine-tooth comb to make sure taxpayers are getting what they pay for.

I’m fortunate to have a stellar team of public policy experts on my staff. These are the folks that will make sure we're able to make a difference for the people of District 1. I hope you’ll take a moment to get to know them, and get in touch on the issues you care about. My team can be reached at [email protected] or 503-988-5220.

Megan Beyer will serve as Chief of Staff, a role she held in my legislative office. Megan brings over a decade of policy experience to the position, having worked for several members of the Oregon Legislature.

Christine Lewis will serve as Policy Director. Christine brings a wealth of political and legislative experience to the team. She served as Deputy Legislative Director in the office of Speaker Tina Kotek, and most recently helped mobilize voters in my campaign for county commissioner.

Walter Robinson II will serve as Policy Analyst and Community Outreach Coordinator. Walter graduated from Willamette University in 2011 and has worked at the Metropolitan Group and Boy Scouts of America.

You made all the difference in my campaign, and I would be honored if you would attend my swearing-in ceremony tomorrow:

WHAT: Swearing-in Ceremony for Multnomah County Commissioner Jules Bailey
WHEN: Wednesday, June 11, at 10:30 a.m.
WHERE: 501 SE Hawthorne Blvd. (Multnomah Building), Commissioners Board Room 100 - off the lobby

I hope to see you there!
