Kathy LeCompte.An Owner of a Local Nursery Who Understands Economics, How to Create Jobs
Kathy LeCompte has experience with economics, creating jobs and managing international trade issues that affect Oregon's ability to be more competitive globally. Kathy wants Oregon to be a leader for job creation, not the national leader in unemployment.
Kathy LeCompte…Why is Oregon First in Unemployment and Homelessness and Second in Hunger?
Oregonians should be outraged with political leaders that allow our state to be a leader in unemployment, homelessness, and hunger. Kathy believes we need a non partisan approach to these issues because real people are the ones that are affected.
Kathy LeCompte…New Taxes are Not the Answer
Kathy LeCompte believes we don't need new taxes, but that we need to get more out of our government services and programs than we currently get. State Employees work hard, but they need better leadership. We need more accountability and oversight to get back on track, not more taxes.
