For over a decade, Rebecca has been a top political strategist in Oregon and has worked on more than 40 political campaigns for local government, legislative and statewide candidates, plus county and statewide ballot measures.
Most recently, Rebecca was Statewide Campaign Coordinator for the “No on Measure 97” coalition, the campaign to defeat the $6.1 billion tax on corporate sales that was on Oregon’s November 2016 ballot. The campaign soundly defeated Measure 97, 59% to 41%, in what was the largest, most expensive campaign in Oregon’s history. In 2010, she served as the Political Director for the Oregon House Republican Caucus where she helped lead the Oregon House to a historic 30-30 tie between Republicans and Democrats for the 2011 legislative session.
In addition to running her own consulting firm, Tweed Strategies, Rebecca is an Of Counsel consultant to Gallatin Public Affairs and G2 Public Strategies in the Pacific Northwest. Rebecca is also the Executive Director of Grow Oregon, a business-led nonpartisan outreach effort to help Oregonians understand that growing our state’s economy is the best way to produce new revenue for public services and provide for Oregonians’ personal economic and social prosperity.
Rebecca’s goal – to make a difference in Oregon’s social and political affairs – goes beyond electoral politics. it’s about playing a role in bettering her community. She currently serves as President of Emerging Leaders for Oregon, and volunteers with Union Gospel Mission, Dress for Success Oregon and the Portland City Club. She regularly speaks at high schools, colleges and conferences about political issues, campaign strategy and the importance of being a leader in the community.
A native Oregonian, Rebecca graduated from Syracuse University where she studied Political Science, Public Policy and Philosophy with focuses in International Relations and Women’s studies. Rebecca was featured in Portland Monthly Magazine’s March 2015 edition as one of the “10 Amazing Women Who Are Changing Oregon.”
