A Decade of Leadership and Experience!
In 10 years as a city council member and Mayor of Junction City, Dwight has fought hard to bring us jobs, support our families and get a grip on spending. Dwight did this by putting people first. As your State Representative, Dwight will put YOU ahead of politics!
When others talk, Dwight gets the Jobs!
As Mayor of Junction City, Dwight fought hard to secure a new state hospital and prison, bringing in 1,500 new familywage jobs to our community when completed.
As your State Representative, Dwight will work to bring family wage jobs to our community!
Supporting our Families and Businesses!
When a local business talked of moving out of central Eugene, Dwight went right to work relocating the business to Junction City/West Eugene. Not only did he save 250 local family-wage jobs, Dwight’s work provided the business a location to grow and create more family-wage jobs. As your state representative Dwight will put families FIRST!
Getting a grip on State Spending!
Elected in Junction City 10 years ago, Dwight fought hard to successfully balance the budget and get a grip on spending by applying common-sense practices of setting priorities and funding basic government services first.
As your State Representative, Dwight will bring common-sense back to state government!
