Education Experience Delivering Results
Ed Glad worked to build successful education for our children in Yamhill County for 15 years. Ed has experience bringing quality educational opportunities for local students, particularly vocational education through building public-private partnerships.
"Ed understands the need for excellence in education. He raised his own children in local schools and has labored rigorously for more effective classes, quality teachers, and school accountability and success. I know he will continue to work to ensure your tax dollars go where they are needed most--the classroom."
Jacque Vigil, 3rd Grade Teacher, McMinnville
Protecting Private Property Rights
Ed Glad supports a fair and balanced approach to private property rights. It's critical to support property owners' aspirations-and work to preserve Oregon and Yamhill County's quality of life.
Ed believes our natural resources, especially water, must be respected and used wisely and fairly.
"Ed Glad will fight for private property owners while protecting residents from radicals who support putting large housing subdivisions, big box stores and strip malls where they don't belong."
Marilyn Shaver, Owner, Wayward Winds Farm & Nursery
Transportation-Get Something Done!
Election after election, politicians promise to get something done, yet we're still sitting in traffic! The Dundee-Newberg bypass is a perfect example of how Yamhill County continues to be discounted in the states' transportation goals. Now is the time to resolve the transportation bottlenecks throughout our region.
Lower Taxes, Create Jobs
Ed believes solutions to economic difficulties are not by raising taxes. Ed makes it his job as a representative of Oregon's taxpayers to ensure government spends your money wisely.
Vote Ed you'll be Glad you did.
