A Personal Letter From John Dallum To The Voters Of House
District 59:

Dear Neighbors,

My campaign platform is simple: I want to help find a
solution to Oregon’s funding crisis. We must control the
growth of state government while offering basic services:
public safety, education and human services.

I believe that while our economy is struggling we should do
all we can to encourage businesses and job growth – and
not raise taxes on those Oregonians who are working.

In rural Oregon we need more jobs – not new taxes. In
the Legislature, I will do all I can to promote and protect our
vital natural resource economy.

As a public school superintendent for 25 years I also
recognize the struggles and challenges facing our local
schools – and have a proven record of solving them with
innovative and successful solutions.

If you believe as I do, in lower taxes, and an efficient and
accountable government, then I hope you will vote for
me in the Republican primary. Please feel free to call me at
home at 541-506-9284 if you have any questions or would
like to discuss an issue further.
