“I have always considered it an honor to call myself an Oregonian. In recent years, however, I have seen this great state headed down the wrong track. Established politicians have all too often had a free pass on Election Day returning to their stale ideas that have failed year after year. I promise to serve you in Salem as an independent voice with fresh ideas, outside the everyday partisan politics. Please join me in taking back our state!”
