    BILL YOUNG: Government must Tighten its Belt
    Just like your family, Government must tighten its belt. Under Oregon’s current leadership, the state budget has increased 40% in the last four years. Bill doesn’t believe the services our state offers have matched that increase in spending, nor can Oregonians afford the tax and fee increases which have funded it. Bill Young will prioritize spending in Salem.

    BILL YOUNG: Fund Education First
    Bill knows that our children are the future leaders of Oregon and our country. Oregon needs to ensure and maximize our use of education dollars. Bill will always fund education first.

    BILL YOUNG: Making Oregon Business Friendly
    Oregon needs to create incentives for businesses to open and flourish, not leave for Idaho and Washington. When Oregon is open for business, Oregonians will prosper. Bill Young will make jobs his top priority in Salem.

    BILL YOUNG: A Community Leader

He has been active in Kiwanis, the Greenhill Humane Society and has coached children’s sports for 10 years. He has been married to his wife Diana for 42 years and together have raised two sons. He has a track record of humble accomplishment and service to his community. He will represent you well in Salem.

    Join Bill for a change in Salem!
