Character, leadership and real experience matters!

"I'm an independent minded constitutional republican who believes public safety ought to come first, protecting our children is the key to our future, supporting Oregon businesses leads to public prosperity, defending private property rights is like defending our borders, respecting seniors for their experience, and less government will result in the attainment of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
