Brian knows when proactive health care is ignored, it costs us more in the long run. We need leaders who recognize that paying a small amount now reaps huge savings in the future.


Brian believes our schools do their job well if properly funded, supported and managed. Education is a benefit to the entire state and improving its delivery to our children is a win for all sides.


Brian will work with other leaders to develop aggressive, long-term strategies to improve Oregon's attractiveness to new and native business. When business grows, jobs increase.


Brian respects the tireless work of those who protect us every day. Restoring losses to police, fire and medical responders will be a top priority.


Brian knows sacrificing the environment for short-term gain is a long-term loss. Well-planned and fair land use planning preserves individual rights while increases the success of business without damaging Oregon's natural beauty.

This year, try a new direction for a better Oregon.
