BRAD WITT - REPRESENTING OUR VALUES
"Having raised my family in Clatskanie, I feel a genuine kinship with the land, culture and people of NW Oregon. What a wonderful challenge to speak for a vast, rural district and to stand up for the values of its hard working people." - Brad Witt
Standing up for Schools
For successful children, Oregonians must invest in stable funding for K-12 education. We must commit to strengthening community college programs so essential to bolstering Oregon's rural economy.
Access to Affordable Health Care
For too many Oregonians, health care is too expensive or completely out of reach. On their behalf, I am fighting to expand access to affordable health care coverage and prescription drugs.
Growing Our Natural Resource Economy
To preserve the livability of our communities and strengthen our rural economy, sustainability is the key. We must embrace an economic, social and environmental balance as we strive to create new family-wage jobs.
Keeping Our Communities Safe
The rampant methamphetamine epidemic in our state is one of many serious, complex challenges. We must keep our families safe, protect the rights of crime victims, and empower our criminal justice system.
