Working for a Better Tomorrow
I am running for State Senator because I believe in a better tomorrow for every man, woman and child in the state of Oregon. Our leaders are losing contact with the real world and the real challenges we face. Working with you, I will take our passions and concerns to Salem where we can bring about change.
Providing for our Children and our Schools
I have four wonderful grandchildren whose education is very important to me. The schools and environment they learn in will forever shape their futures. We owe it to our schools to give them certainty. Every politician goes to Salem promising to fund schools first but turn around and fund it last. We need to change that.
Restoring Faith in Government
It is time to put an end to the backroom deals and partisanship that have caused people to lose faith in their government. We need to work in the open and toward a consensus. The days of cutting deals in the dark and then asking people to fall in line are over. Rather than working to advance a personal agenda we need to work to advance Oregon.
Value for Your Tax Dollar
When you pay your taxes you are investing those dollars in your government. For too long those investments have shown pretty poor returns. I will work to make sure you know you are getting something for your money - something real that will get our state moving in the right direction.
The Leadership You Deserve
I will work toward a better Oregon for all of us and I will give every citizen the type of leadership they expect and deserve.
