Proven Leadership Local Results
I want to thank you for putting your confidence in me last election. I am running for reelection to the Oregon House of Representatives to meet the challenges we face here at home.
As Chair of the House Trade and Economic Development Committee, I was leading the legislation for economic growth. Our economy continues to recover and create jobs, which provided more funding for education, human services, and public safety.
As a family man, entrepreneur, community volunteer, and legislator, I will utilize my experiences to effectively work for you. I am going to use my common sense in the legislative process if you give me the vote of confidence again.
I will continue to do the best I can to represent your views, and to make sure your beliefs are reflected in the legislative process. You are important to me, and I believe you are the first priority over the government.
Thank you for your support.
