Check out Jerome’s new video podcast series, Issues on Tap with Jerome. “So often candidates offer cliché campaign platitudes about issues important to voters,” explained Sibayan, “and I wanted to truly inform Beavertonians about my views in a longer format. They deserve that transparency about who they are voting for in September.”

I am here to serve you.
I have had an unanticipated, inconceivable life. From commanding Soldiers in combat to leading no-notice environmental compliance inspections of Federal facilities for the Environmental Protection Agency to providing superlative engineering management as a Public Works Director to suffering the consequences as a Federal whistleblower against rampant US Government corruption — I have learned and benefitted from a wide range of experiences. Selfless service characterized by courage, candor, competence, and commitment stands at the core of my being.
Beaverton is my home.
I am running to fill Beaverton’s Council Position #1 in the September 21, 2021 Runoff Election. I am running because national service, public service, and community service are intrinsic parts of the story of my life. Vote for me if you want a leader whose integrity is tested and true. My word is my bond. Vote for me if you want a member of the City Council who is energetically focused on Beaverton. Vote for me if you want an independent public servant who can think outside-of-the-box and is comfortable with questioning everything.
