An Open Letter From Jeff Kruse To The Voters Of Senate District 1:

Dear Neighbors,

In my four terms in the Oregon House of Representatives I have served on committees ranging from natural resources to government efficiency. As the three term Chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee, I have become the acknowledged health care expert in the Legislature.

I want to put my experience to work for you as your next State Senator. I will continue to work hard on the issues you care about.
Together we can make a difference.
