Cheryl will listen to your problems and ideas. She will bring new energy and leadership to the Legislature. She believes in honesty and integrity, and speaking up for what is right. One strong voice can make a difference.

Cheryl Believes in Oregon

Cheryl believes that our government, businesses, and schools must work together to get Oregonians back to work and to rebuild the Oregon economy.

Cheryl Will Control State Spending

Cheryl will hold the line on discretionary state spending. We can’t afford new or different taxes. There are many ways for the State to save money without hurting vital safety, education, and health programs.

Cheryl Supports Agriculture and Business

Cheryl will fight for farmers and businesses, and resist more regulations. We don’t need a watch dog in Salem trying to catch us doing something wrong. We must be good stewards of our land.

Cheryl will protect our senior citizens from tax and cost-of-living increases. Seniors on fixed incomes have special health, transportation, housing, energy, and medical needs.

Cheryl Supports Education

Cheryl believes that a free public education is what made our country great. An affordable college education is the best cure for poverty and unemployment.
