When I'm 64

The Beatles recorded "When I'm Sixty-Four" in 1966. I was twelve, and 64 seemed pretty old at the time. It seems like it was yesterday, and yet here I am, turning 64 today.

Years ago I got on the long and winding road and moved to Oregon. With a little help from my friends I spent time in Eugene in college, and then law school. Do you want to know a secret? I didn't imagine I'd be a member of Congress one day. But I fell in love with this state, made Washington County my home, raised a family here, and I'm now honored to represent NW Oregon.

I've been fortunate. I've had choices. A wonderful education that prepared me for a fulfilling career. Supportive family, colleagues, and friends. Meaningful work.

That's what I want for every Oregonian.

I fight for fairness, opportunity, and a better future for Oregonians because I love Oregon and the people who call it home.

Here's my birthday wish. Help! You can't buy me love, but please don't let me down.

It won't be long until the election. If you never give me your money, now is the time!

Pitch in $64 to support this 64-year-old Beatles fan and my fight for America's future.

If you can't do that much, I hope you will consider contributing something. (I'm also helping several other candidates this cycle because there's more than one fool on the hill).

And then, listen to the Beatles. I know that, despite these challenging times, we can work it out. Even across the universe.

Thank you for standing with me, especially on my birthday.
