INDEPENDENT. BOLD. SOLUTIONS.
Funding for Portland Public Schools, cost of health care and the failure of the Oregon Legislature to effectively address these issues are causing the pillars of our community to crack. My top legislative priorities are:
The current paralysis in our Legislature is unacceptable. It is time for leadership that puts partisan politics aside and addresses the issues facing Oregonians.
FUNDING FOR PORTLAND PUBLIC SCHOOLS
With a school finance background, I have developed solid solutions for this grave problem.
OREGON HEALTH CARE REFORM
Health care costs are out of control. My plan addresses the needs of individuals and small business for affordable health insurance.
Oregonians face serious issues, requiring real solutions. I offer a clear vision and plan, backed with my experience of being in the Legislature and a small business owner.
All of the candidates tell you what the problems are. I give you solutions. The issues are real. The answers are here. Now is the time to act. Please join me in this mission to be bold, independent and solution minded. Thank You.
