Creating More Jobs
In a year where Oregon's unemployment has reached insurmountable levels, its time for the legislature to stop increasing fees and taxes that make it difficult for employers to keep a payroll. A growing, stable private sector is fundamental to strong social services, better programs for education and increased revenue both locally and for the state.
Supporting Stronger Education
Mark believes Oregon's future lies in the strength of our education system. He wants to fund education first and fund it wisely-our state has no greater obligation than to ensure it is providing the resources necessary for a quality education for Oregon's kids. A stronger education system means greater opportunities for the future of kids, community and state.
Stabilizing Local Business
As a small business owner, Mark understands firsthand the challenges businesses are facing in this tough economy. He knows it's not always easy to make ends meet. Mark will work in Salem to develop a business-friendly Oregon that keeps businesses in our state, attracts investment, creates jobs, and fosters financial security.
