State Representative Mary Nolan Against Senate Bill 861

Just found out my State Representative, Mary Nolan, does not support Senate Bill 861, to stop the cruel and unnecessary force-feeding of birds for foie gras. This even though no Democratic State Senators voted against it, and two Republicans even voted for it.

She represents the west side of Portland - here is a map of her district (36): http://www.leg.state.or.us/nolan/hd36.jpg (If you want to find your state senator and representative, not to be confused with your Federal senators or representatives, go to http://votesmart.org

This makes me wonder what other issues she is basically a Republican on. Anyone have any ideas how to find a better candidate (i.e. a real Democrat) next time around?
