Your Voice in Salem

Joanna Lofaso respects what the people want. The voters want quality services, but they also want our state government to live within its means. She will accomplish this with commitment, drive, and the experience to know how to get things done.

Joanna Lofaso has a strong background in banking/finance. It makes her uniquely qualified to address the budget problems facing Oregon. Also, Oregon had the highest unemployment in the country, and Joanna’s vision is to create an economic climate which allows our businesses and tourism to prosper. She will accomplish this healthy business environment by reducing
government regulations and taxes.

Joanna Lofaso firmly believes in a strong education system. It fuels individual prosperity and thus our economy. Like you, Joanna does not want to see education service cut. It only hurts the people who need it most, the students. As your legislator, Joanna will ensure that our tax dollars are going into the classrooms, achieving maximum educational value.

Joanna Lofaso favors reducing forest fire hazard through density reduction.

Joanna is starting NOW! She invites citizen involvement to move the state forward and develop the type of vision Southern Oregon needs to be successful.
