“MAKE OREGON WHOLE”From Enterprise to Vale to Lakeview to Coos Bay and Portland, we have high unemployment, business slow downs and shut downs and our school are in a funding crunch. The pain is often greater in small towns than in bigger ones.. No one person can fix everything, but I believe I can help. Outsourcing good jobs over seas has to stop. Businesses need more reasons to stay here, grow and put more Oregonians to work in small towns and cities. Family farms and ranchers need stability in changing market conditions. Schools, including vocational programs, need funding. If low-income housing is needed, build it for truly low-income residents, including qualifying seniors.
I support President Bush’s State of the Union agenda in the fight against terrorism, but I question using National Guard and reserve troops for sustained wars. Oregon citizens are paying too high of a price for their country. Our full-time military needs expanding now.
Ron Wyden has never worked in business but I have. Help me defeat him so I can work with you to “make Oregon whole” again.
