"Our schools need a consistent financial foundation, and our quality of life requires upgraded transportation options and economic growth that comes from job creation."

  • Our transportation system must move people & goods efficiently
  • The tax & regulatory system must allow businesses to grow, thrive & create jobs


"I see a positive future for Oregon. To achieve it we must be forward-thinking and not simply rely on solutions from the past." Everett Curry
