"Senator George has been the most effective taxpayer watchdog in the Oregon Senate. He has saved the Oregon taxpayers millions of dollars by standing up to the powerful spending lobby"

Dear Friends,
When you elected me as your State Senator I promised that I would hold true to the principles of limited government and individual freedom – and my voting record proves that I have kept my commitments to you. It has been an honor representing the people of Senate District 12, and with your support I look forward to serving you again as your State Senator.
