Meet Jules Bailey
Jules Bailey grew up in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Southeast Portland and graduated from Lincoln High School and Lewis and Clark College. As a three-term State Representative from Oregon House District 42, Jules has been representing Multnomah County citizens for five years leading on issues ranging from job creation, the clean energy economy, and building healthy communities.
In the State House, Jules has advocated for legislation that benefits all Multnomah County Citizens. In 2012, he worked with the Raphael House of Portland to pass the Healthy Teen Relationship Act to help break the cycle of domestic violence before it starts. And in 2013, Jules worked to help Oregonians build retirement savings, bring down the cost of prescription drugs, and increase access to medications for people in need. As Multnomah County Commissioner, Jules will continue fighting for programs that cut costs and save the county money while protecting our most vulnerable citizens.
A key advocate for job creation and the clean energy economy, Jules passed legislation with bipartisan support to help thousands of homeowners upgrade their homes for comfort and energy efficiency, creating hundreds of new jobs in our state. He also passed the High Performance Schools bill, which helped Oregon schools across the state modernize their buildings and reduce costs.
Jules has been recognized as a smart, common sense leader with the skills to build consensus around some of our toughest problems. With experience managing our natural resources and balancing budgets as a member of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Natural Resources, Jules will keep a careful eye on our public budgets to help the County meet its mission to help more people.
When not in the Legislature, Jules runs Pareto Global, LLC, a economic consulting practice. He lives with his wife, Jessica, in Southeast Portland.
