She is a veteran and a Doctor in Psychology
Dr. Angela Plowhead has announced her candidacy for Oregon's new 6th Congressional District seat.
While she currently resides in Marion County, she has years of experience working, living and going to school across much of the Willamette Valley, the Portland Metro area, Central Oregon, as well as Central and Northern Oregon Coasts.
As an intelligence analyst in the U.S. Air Force she saw first-hand the dangers of allowing Communist and Marxist ideals to permeate a society and the detrimental impacts it had on a citizen's freedoms and daily life. She has watched these same ideas take root in Portland policies to create chaos, harm business, allow homelessness to go unchecked, and destroy tourism due to defunded law enforcement, who no longer have the resources to keep Portland streets safe.
She sees similar ideology coming out of Washington, D.C. and does not want to see the rest of Oregon or America go down this same destructive path. She says, "I served in the military to protect our freedoms and our constitution from those from the outside and now I am prepared to go to D.C. to protect it from those within, from those who are attempting to erode the rights our Constitution gives us to self-determination, to bear arms, to religious and economic freedoms. Every American deserves the right to improve their circumstances!"
Dr. Plowhead sees the protections provided by the U.S. Constitution as essential to her own rise from poverty and racial prejudice to obtain her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D) and become a small business owner. She has spent her career serving veterans and lobbying state and federal legislatures for the rights and needs of seniors and people with disabilities. She understands the challenges faced by parents struggling with the current public school system through real life experience advocating in for her own child with special needs.
Angela Plowhead is a Clinical Psychologist, veteran, and small business owner who has committed her career to serving veterans and being a voice for those who do not have one. She has been married for over 25 years and is a mother of two active boys.
