WE MUST RESTORE OREGON’S ECONOMY
You need a representative who will fight in Salem for Oregon jobs. We can’t restore Oregon’s economy by piling on tax burdens that drive family-owned businesses to close or leave the state. It’s time to focus on policies that encourage companies to create jobs and incentives that bring and keep businesses in Oregon.
RESTRAIN GOVERNMENT SPENDING, LIMIT TAXESIs your family spending more than ever in this economy? Probably not. So why is Salem spending beyond its means year after year? Like you, the legislature needs to live within a realistic budget that protects vital services but limits costs that taxpayers and our economy simply can’t afford.
EDUCATION: OREGON’S FIRST PRIORITY
There’s no excuse for letting our kids down. Their future as well as Oregon’s future depends on making a real investment in our greatest asset: our kids. Education at every level must be our top priority and not held hostage to other costly projects.
