    Private business has always been the economic engine. Remove government interference, over-regulation and high taxes and allow Oregon businesses and entrepreneurs to put Oregon back to work. As a small business owner, I understand what it takes to create jobs.

    Fiscal Responsibility

    We cannot spend our way to prosperity. I’ve been saying that Oregon doesn’t have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. We must control and prioritize spending. Begin our budgeting at zero and stop automatically increasing budgets. I’ve consistently voted against wasteful spending and the dangerous practice of over-borrowing.

    Limited Government

    I believe the growth and overreaching control of government has caused many Oregonians to question the direction we’re headed, and they say “Enough!” A serious conversation has begun regarding the size and reach of government, at every level.

    Personal Freedoms

    You know what’s best for you, your family and property, not lawmakers and agencies in Salem. From how and where to spend your money to educating your kids, the freedom to choose should be yours.
