It has been an honor and privilege to serve as your State Senator over the past three years. We have made strides in exposing the public to the important issues facing Oregonians. I am asking again for your support as there is a great deal of work to be done to get families back to work, our state's spending under control and focused on the core functions of government. As you may know, Jessica and I have always invited you to call us at home with any questions or concerns. If you have any questions of me before you vote, please call me at home at (503) 925-9650.
State Senator Larry George
Senator George's Priorities:
#1. Remove Barriers to Job Creation:
We must remove tax structure hurdles, regulatory burdens, and legal threats to small businesses in order to create jobs for Oregonians.
#2. Control Spending:
Oregon's current budget is up more than 20% over the last one ($49 Billion to $60 Billion). This is not sustainable for the future of our state.
#3. Prioritize Core Functions of State Spending:
The majority party spent over $10 billion more in the current budget, but cut K-12 education by nearly $500 million. This was an outrageous way to blackmail voters into raising taxes. We must fund core functions of state government first, not last.
Larry George is endorsed by the following small business organizations because of his support of real, family wage jobs in Oregon:
