    As Mayor, I understand budgets. As a business owner, I understand how to adjust when times are tough. Currently, Oregonians are facing the most serious financial crisis in decades. Thousands are unemployed, many more are struggling, businesses are leaving, and others simply have to close their doors. We can no longer afford the tax and spend policies of Salem. We need a state that attracts small businesses and stop pushing them away.

    I am running because I know we can balance our budget, take care of the most vulnerable, and fund our core services without asking for new taxes. I know we can find creative ways to fund our police, fire, schools and health services without increasing the burden on our citizens and businesses.

    I will lead the fight to find tangible solutions to these and many more problems facing our state.

    I pledge to do what is best for Oregonians, regardless of party politics.

    I humbly ask for your vote.

    I am proud to be endorsed by:

    North Clackamas County Chamber of Commerce
    Oregon Small Business Association
    Taxpayer Association of Oregon PAC
