OUR CHILDREN, OUR FARMERS, OUR COMMUNITIES
JIM GILBERT SUPPORTS OUR FARMERS. Jim has lived near Molalla and operated his successful nursery business for over 23 years. A member of the Oregon Association of Nurseries and the Oregon Farm Bureau, Jim will work to expand markets for our nursery stock and farm commodities. He will fight to protect the fertile soils essential to the success of Oregon agriculture. Jim powers his tractors with clean-burning vegetable oil Bio-Diesel that can be grown in Oregon.
JIM GILBERT WILL WORK FOR OUR CHILDREN. Our children are the future of our communities and our State. Jim is dedicated to providing them a high quality education to prepare them for our 21st Century economy. Jim will work hard to ensure that our schools receive secure and stable funding while making certain that our tax dollars are spent wisely.
JIM GILBERT WILL HELP GROW OUR ECONOMY. Jim is committed to the success of our communities. He will work to bring more good paying, full time jobs to our District. He will promote the Molalla River, the Oregon Garden, Oktoberfest, and other community resources and events, important sources of tourism dollars for our District.
JIM GILBERT IS DEDICATED TO CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM. The influence of special interest contributions has corrupted our political process and eroded our trust in our elected officials. Jim will not accept funds from special interest groups and out of state corporations. His citizen financed campaign ensures us that he will represent the residents of his district, not the lobbyists and special interests. Please see Jim's web site for information on how you can support his campaign and take advantage of Oregon's Political Contribution Tax Credit.
WE NEED JIM'S STRONG, INDEPENDENT LEADERSHIP IN SALEM!
