I’ve worked hard as your legislator to create jobs for our struggling economy, cut the costs of PERS to the taxpayer by $9 Billion and helped modernize the Oregon Health Plan so it’s more cost-effective and preserves patient access to care.
As a Member of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee, I will insist on getting family wage jobs back in our forests so that we can fund our schools more appropriately. Serving on the Joint Legislative Audit Committee, I will seek to force each State Agency to become efficient by using “performance-based audits” thus assuring that state government is not overstaffed.
