Working for Every Oregonian

I am running for the Oregon State Senate because I believe government should work for Oregonians and not for special interests. It should strengthen the middle class, help our families, support education and protect our resources for future generations.

My top priorities would be to:
  . Create jobs through investment in infrastructure projects and      improving the lending environment for small business
  . Improve and stabilize funding for our schools from kindergarten     through college, keeping funding focused on the classroom
  . Invest in our local economy by saving farmland from over-
    development, strip malls and sub-divisions

  . Fight for access to health care for all Oregonians

"Timi Parker will be a fresh voice on what our community can do to improve our schools and help our kids. She understands education, and she knows how to make our schools work better for our children."
                Jill McKenzie, 1st grade teacher, Newberg

                        A State Senator who Works for You
I will be your advocate in the State Legislature. I will always have an open door for my constituents and their needs. I understand that the actions of the legislature have an impact on our everyday lives, and I will always have the needs of Oregon's working families and children in mind as I represent our district.

"Timi Parker will bring fresh ideas and a needed new perspective to the Oregon legislature. She'll be a strong voice for the middle class."
                        - Denise Bacon, Newberg City Councilor
