2018 Primary Voters' Guide

Coming Soon
James Tolson

Elected Experience: None

Other Professional Experience: Founder and Board President of Concerned Humans Against Poverty (CHAP), a Non-Profit Organization that supports those living in poverty and our local Homeless population.

Education: High School Diploma

Community Service: I have worked with many Local Non-Profits and/or Grassroots Organizations, including, but not limited to; CHAP, Free Hot Soup-Vancouver, Helping Hands Vancouver, Burrito Project-Portland, Represent US-Vancouver... I am less concerned with itemizing my community service and more concerned with changing the way we think about Community Service. Every day we take to serve each other, is a day we serve towards our own survival.   

Statement: The cost of survival and living are the highest they have ever been, yet, our wages haven't risen to keep up. More people are without homes and decent jobs. More people are living in their cars. More kids are taking backpacks of food from schools, to feed themselves and their families. Record tax breaks for corporations, while small businesses continue to struggle. Democrats blame Republicans and Republicans blame Democrats. In all of this discourse, each side continues to draw a paycheck and continue to ask for your donations and votes. Insanity is doing the same thing, expecting something different.
