With the current difficulties facing our community, state and country, service no longer becomes a buzz word but instead a call to duty.
Affordable Health Care
The state of the health care system is in peril. Too many Oregonians and their children are priced out of health insurance. As your next State Representative, I will work tirelessly to bring affordable, accountable and responsible health care reform.
Besides healthy children our community needs a strong public education system. We must fight for more dollars to find their way into the classroom. By decreasing administrative overhead we can limit class sizes and get back to the most important thing students do in a classroom-learn.
Creating Job for Oregonians
Let's stop shipping our Oregon jobs overseas. By reinvesting in Oregon's economy we can put the workers back where they belong- at work.
Thank you for this opportunity to earn your vote. I spent 20 years serving our country in the Army, now it would be privilege to serve as your next State Representative.
