I recorded the due date for Voter's Pamphlet submissions incorrectly, and missed the deadline. The seriousness of this error is not lost on me, however, I do not give up. I have reorganized my campaign strategy, and I intend to win. I ask you, the voters, to understand that this is not indicative of my qualifications, nor does it negate the work I've done for the City of Hillsboro over the years, or the good work I'm capable of doing in the future. Below, please find my Candidate's Statement, as it was intended to appear in the Voter's Pamphlet.
Candidate: Brenda McCoy, Hillsboro City Council, Ward 2
Occupation: Outreach and Enrollment Coordinator, Swallowtail Waldorf School and Farm
Occupational Background: Office Manager and Biologist, MixZon, Inc.; Environmental Consulting; Teaching; Marketing and Retail Management
Educational Background: BS Biology, Portland State University; MS Environmental Education, Southern Oregon University
Prior Governmental Experience: Hillsboro Planning and Zoning Hearings Board (PZHB) 2009-present; Advisory Committee for Citizen Involvement (ACCI) 2014-15
Experienced and Committed
I chose Hillsboro 11 years ago as the place I wanted to raise my child, and I strongly believe this to be one of the greatest places in the world to do that. I've been an active volunteer in the community in many ways, and I'm honored that my neighbors and peers have asked me to continue my work for the City as a member of the City Council.
Our quality of life in Hillsboro hinges on our ability to manage our rapid population growth in such a way that we can preserve our values. The years I've spent working on the Planning and Zoning Hearings Board have helped shaped the way Hillsboro has been developing, and have helped me learn "The Hillsboro Way". I want to honor our agricultural heritage and maintain our small-town feel for all those who live and work in Hillsboro.
I thank you for your support.
- Having available housing at all income levels

"The diversity of Hillsboro enriches our community. We, the voters of Hillsboro, have an opportunity to elect three qualified candidates with diverse backgrounds, experience, and vision to the Hillsboro City Council. They include Abdi Muse, Brenda McCoy and Sandra Jafarzadeh.
"The success of the high-tech sector locally has brought previously unimagined prosperity to Hillsboro. New industry has provided job opportunities to locals and imported newcomers at all levels of the social ladder — from CEOs to migrant laborers, software engineers to housekeepers, as well as schoolteachers, medical providers, and law enforcement. No matter our views on race and immigration, wealth and welfare, the truth is that we are all interconnected and interdependent.
