Greg Thorne will cut taxes by cutting waste. Lower taxes will create thousands of jobs in Oregon. Government waste is costing us money and jobs. Measure 30 failed because the current legislature failed. Greg Thorne will work to lower taxes and improve the quality of our schools.


Law enforcement bureaucracies are inefficient and can be dramatically streamlined, providing better safety for our children, our families and ourselves.


Greg Thorne will create stable funding for our schools. Give the schools the money they need every year and invest the savings for lean times. Investing not only saves money, it produces more money. Oregon is spending $9,000 spent annually per K-12 student. We spend more than most states in the nation. But our quality suffers from fiscal mismanagement. We need to improve the quality of public education, while lowering the costs of health insurance and other expenses.

It’s time for a change. It’s time to elect Greg Thorne.

We need a representative in the Oregon State House who will lead the legislature to better education, jobs and public safety. That leader is Greg Thorne.
