The right values for our community.
The right voice for working families.

Affordable, Accessible Healthcare
Mike knows that quality health care shouldn't be a luxury. He voted consistently to protect patients on the Oregon Health Plan, and supported a bill to reduce the cost of prescription drugs for seniors.

Creating Jobs, Moving Our Economy Forward
As a self-employed contractor, Mike understands the importance of good, local jobs. That's why he voted to invest in improving our roads, creating thousands of good-paying jobs and making Oregon a more attractive state for new businesses.

Supporting Our Schools
Mike kept his promise to put kids first and fight for stable funding for our schools. As a father of a fifth-grade daughter, for Mike education isn't a campaign issue, it's a personal commitment.

Protecting the Safety and Livability of Our Communities
Mike believes that our neighborhoods should be safe for all families – from children to seniors – to live, work and play. To make our streets safer, he co-sponsored a new law to permanently revoke the drivers licenses of repeat drunk drivers. Mike is also a consistent advocate for clean air and water.
