Chavez-DeRemer Announces Coalition of Support from 100 Veterans across the 5th District

HAPPY VALLEY, Oregon – Today, Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer (OR-05) announced her re-election campaign’s “Veterans for Lori” coalition, composed of 100 veterans from every corner of Oregon’s 5th Congressional District. The coalition includes Oregonians who have served in various branches of the United States Armed Forces.

“I’m very grateful to have the support of so many honorable men and women who have stepped up to serve our country,” Chavez-DeRemer said. “In Congress, I’ve worked hard to fulfill our nation’s commitment to veterans – a reflection of our eternal gratitude for their bravery and sacrifices. Veterans deserve the best care and attention possible, and that’s why I’ll keep fighting to improve health care options and expand mental health resources. It’s an honor to serve those who have selflessly served us.”

During her first term, Chavez-DeRemer has successfully led efforts to authorize over half a billion dollars in funding for the Portland VA, pass bipartisan legislation to help lift veterans out of homelessness, and expand funding for the Veterans Crisis Line. She recently voted for legislation that would increase funding for the VA to ensure all Oregon veterans receive the health care and benefits they have earned.
