We didn’t get everything we wanted, but we got a lot, and I’ll be going back as soon as I can to fight for more if we can get it.”
“Rep. Weber was a fierce advocate for rural Northwest Oregon throughout the Ways and Means process,” remarked Rep.

Rural Northwest Oregon is fortunate to have an advocate that is so laser-focused on the needs of the community as is Suzanne Weber.”
