Keeping Oregon's Promise
Every Oregonian shares in something special: Oregon's Promise. It's the promise of a state where our farms and forestlands are protected from out-of-control sprawl. And where a good job and a good life go hand-in-hand. But today, Oregon's Promise is threatened like it's never been before.
Will Rasmussen is running for the Legislature to Keep Oregon's Promise to us and to future generations.
The promise of a healthy economy
Will Rasmussen's plan includes loans and grants to local small businesses that put people back to work, renewable energy investments to create jobs and reduce global warming, and lowering health care costs for small businesses.
"Will Rasmussen's economic plan will help local small businesses start hiring again and that's exactly what we need right now."
-Peter Toll, small business owner
The promise of a healthy environment
To safeguard our special quality of life, Will Rasmussen is a strong believer in Oregon's landmark protections for farm and forestland. Will Rasmussen also supports holding polluters accountable for spoiling our clean air and water.
The Oregon League of Conservation Voters and Sierra Club support Will Rasmussen because of his strong commitment to protecting the environment.
The promise of a good education
Will Rasmussen's education plan includes early childhood education for more Oregon children and reducing class sizes to increase student performance. Will's higher education plan is based on making college affordable for all students who want to attend.
"I'm voting for Will Rasmussen because of his commitment to quality education from the early grades through college."
-Michele W. Allbright, 2009 Edward Byrom Elementary School Teacher of the Year
