John Lim is the people's Governor!
John Lim is the only candidate for Governor with 35 years business experiences - and legislative experience.
After 24 years of one-party Governors, we, the people, can no longer be silent. We need a new direction and a new leader.
REDUCE GOVERNMENT SPENDING
I will introduce for referral a constitutional spending limit which will stipulate that State spending shall not increase at a rate greater than the growth of the State's population and inflation except in cases of State emergencies.
PROVIDE A BUSINESS FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT
I want to be the top, #1 salesman for the State of Oregon. I will do this by: cutting taxes, supporting small businesses, bringing venture capital into our State, encourage exports, utilize our natural resources, and spur tourism. My legacy will be the Governor of Jobs.
INNOVATE IN EDUCATION
We need to quit throwing money at programs that do not work for our children. However, education funding should be top priority. I believe competition in schools is a good thing as we look at ways to improve public schools, encourage more charter schools, and give incentives for private schools and homeschoolers.
MEASURES 66 & 67
I will work to sunset Measures 66 and 67 by 2011.
BAN ON STATE TAX FUNDED ABORTIONS
Last biennium, taxpayers paid over $3 million for abortions. This money is better spent on education.
