Welsh

Occupation: Police Corporal, Salem Police Department; Instructor, Department of Public Safety Standards & Training

Occupational Background: Law enforcement

As a public official, I have always believed the best interests of the public must be placed first and foremost by those appointed or elected to serve them. No public official can be allowed to use his/her position for personal gain, self-promotion or for their own special-interest missions.

What I believe in and will stand for

Mission Statement

Oregon needs solid and committed leadership in the Legislature. We don’t need empty promises from politicians who have their own agendas in mind, instead of what is best for Oregon. We need leaders who will stand up for what is right for Oregonians and listen to them when it comes to running our state. If I am elected as the State Representative for District 23, I will do exactly that. I am committed to continuing to serve the people of Oregon to the best of my ability.
