TERRY BEYER: A Practical Voice for Springfield in the State Capitol
It has been my honor to work for you since 2001. While at times very challenging, I have fought hard to protect your interest and make progress on priority issues. For example: in our last session I brought state stimulus projects to our district, creating jobs, while improving our community colleges and public spaces. I worked to stabilized school funding and expanded healthcare to thousands of uninsured Oregon children. I am particularly proud of my success in passing the bipartisan Jobs and Transportation Act, which will put thousands of people to work updating our roads and bridges, cutting down on congestion and spurring economic growth.But the job is not done. I stand ready to continue to fight during the 2011 legislative session to:
- Create good jobs and strengthen Oregon's economy,
- Ensure our children get the education they need and deserve to be successful - AND - insisting on proven results from educators, and
- Controlling the increasing cost of health care and expanding access.
I bring a practical, common sense approach to issues before the Legislature. My desire is to make government accountable, responsive and leaner. I know how hard everyone works to support their household budget. I take that same attitude to Salem, working hard to tighten the state's budget. You deserve to know your tax dollars are spent wisely.
There is no greater honor than serving as your Representative. I humbly thank you. Please call on me at any time.
