Runoff Election on September 21

Statement on Why I Served

I’m a retired Army lieutenant colonel Jerome Sibayan and I want to tell you why I served for 28 years—around the world and throughout the United States. My parents are Filipino immigrants. They were teenagers in the Philippines during the brutal Japanese occupation in World War 2. I served because I don’t want any American to have their experience.

Statement on Public Safety

Statement on Homelessness

When it comes to homelessness, I know that compassion and empathy are crucially important qualities for decision makers to have before creating enormous programs and throwing money at the problem. I support Beaverton’s 2019 Housing Five-Year Action Plan and believe the City has a sacred duty to make homelessness a brief and rare experience.

Statement on Climate Change

While I promise that as a City Councilor my focus will be on the people of Beaverton, the threats posed by global climate change require the city government to set the example for wise, reasonable actions that promote sustainable growth while improving resilience for our City.

Fundraising and Salary Statement

I will gratefully decline any further campaign contributions and will self-fund my campaign. I will also return all donations made before now. Furthermore, as an elected member of Beaverton’s City Council, I am committed to donating ALL of my after-tax compensation for serving as a Councilor to a different local nonprofit each month.

We need to acknowledge and celebrate the great DIVERSITY in our community. We must pursue EQUITY by addressing structural and systemic inequities wherever we find them. We will require INCLUSIVENESS as an intrinsic quality of a culturally vibrant and economically prosperous city. This is what I am committed to.
