Oregon's Attorney General is the people's chief advocate - the person most responsible for protecting Oregonians from crime, consumer fraud, threats to civil rights, and damage to our environment.
I'm the only candidate for Attorney General with a proven record of fighting to protect Oregon families:
Protecting Oregonians' personal safety: I passed the country's toughest restrictions on the raw material used to make meth, nearly eliminating home meth labs from Oregon. I passed legislation cracking down on internet sex predators and repeat offenders. As Attorney General, I'll make sure these laws are enforced.
Protecting Oregon's consumers: I passed bills cracking down on ID theft and predatory lenders. I'll vigorously enforce Oregon's laws protecting older citizens from scams, and make sure health insurers pay the benefits they owe consumers.
Protecting Oregonian's civil rights: I've always fought for a woman's right to choose, and stood up to extremists trying to chip away at our civil rights. As Attorney General, I'll protect equal rights for all Oregonians and defend the freedom to make reproductive decisions without government interference. That's why I'm endorsed by NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon PAC.
Protecting Oregon's environment: I led the fight for Measure 49, protecting farmlands and open space from developers. As the state's top environmental defender, I'll enforce Oregon's laws reducing greenhouse gases. That's why I'm endorsed by the Oregon League of Conservation Voters.
I'm the only candidate who raised a family in Oregon, the only candidate who practiced law in Oregon, and the only candidate with a record of public service in Oregon. That's why I'm endorsed by Governor Ted Kulongoski, former Governor Barbara Roberts, and Attorney General Hardy Myers.
I'll be honored to have your vote.
