"Ted Wheeler has a proven record using business experience and community leadership to create high-wage jobs, manage investments wisely and save taxpayers million of dollars. We support Ted." -Oregon Business Association

Ted Wheeler believes Oregon's future depends on job creation right now:

  • Investing state funds to grow our economy-- especially if they really create jobs for Oregonians
  • Ted has been a manager in the local financial services industry creating local jobs, supporting small business and pension funds for families.

Ted Wheeler delivers fresh leadership and financial experience with the right priorities:

  • Reduced debt, cut costs, and dramatically tightened accountability as County Chair;
  • Pushing for Oregonians to get their due with more unclaimed or lost property, and uncashed checks returned;
  • Aggressive oversight of state funds and taxpayer money to prevent interruptions in urgent services like public education.

Dear Voter - I'm a fifth generation Oregonian - born and raised here, and I'm raising my family here. As state treasurer, I'll focus on building our economy, keep a sharp eye on the bottom line, and will not sign a single check that doesn't guarantee you are getting a good value. I'd appreciate your vote. -Ted Wheeler
