RESUME

I am a single father of three grown children. I was born June 1, 1938 in Portland Oregon, the third of four sons, to Leo and Frances Weidner. Leo Weidner retired in 1969 as the Deputy Chief of the Portland Fire Department. My parents have lived in the same house at 3526 S.E. Franklin St. Portland Oregon since July of 1937.

I AM RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR TO RESTORE TO THE CITIZENS OF OREGON THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS TO "EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAW" AND "DUE PROCESS OF LAW".

As the State Director of THE CONSTITUTIONAL DEFENDERS for the past ten years I have become shockingly aware of thousands of citizens who have had either their children wrongfully taken from them by State Offices for Services to Children and Family (SOSCF), or their lands wrongfully taken by Land Conservation and Development Commission (LCDC), or other property wrongfully taken from them by corrupt attorneys, judges and bureaucrats.

As a former attorney and public prosecutor I have, along with hundreds of other concerned citizens in this state, been fighting for the last ten years to bring this intolerable corruption in our courts and state government to an end. For attempting to publicly expose this corruption I have been repeatedly ordered arrested, prosecuted and jailed, on groundless charges, by the corrupt judges involved. By filling the courtrooms with angry and concerned citizens I have noticed a marked improvement in the behavior of judges and public officials in dealing with the citizens of this state.

I believe the primary reason for the corruption in our government is lack of accountability. Accordingly, as your Governor, I would make it a top priority of my administration to place the control of all public services under the supervision of the county commissioners in the respective counties. By so doing the public service agencies would be directly accountable to the commissioners and the commissioners would be directly accountable to the people. The different state agencies would be primarily involved in assuring that the county agencies are complying with state law in dealing with the citizens of Oregon. I promise the voters that if I am elected your Governor this November the corruption in our courts and state government will end the day I am sworn into office.

TOP PRIORITIES IF ELECTED GOVERNOR:

1. Repeal Senate Bill 100 (LCDC). Citizens have an absolute right to lawfully use their property as they see fit. Private lands cannot be taken for public use without just compensation.

2. Abolish SOSCF and return that function to the respective counties.

3. Create the Oregon Judicial Commission to oversee and discipline attorneys and judges. The Commission would be made up of 10 members (not-attorneys), two from each Congressional District.

4. Repeal the Scenic Gorge Act.

5. Abandon Outcome Based Education (goals 2000) and the Oregon Shine Benchmark Goals Program currently being used in our public schools.

6. I endorse home schooling and a voucher system that allows parents the right to send their children to the school of their choice.

7. I favor the passage of the 2.5% Single Flat Tax (gross receipts tax) which would replace the state income tax, property tax and sales tax. The Single Flat Tax would guarantee funding of all essential public services.

8. Modify Measure 11 so that non-violent teenagers are not given long prison sentences for non-violent or victimless crimes.

9. Preserve the Savage Rapid Dam.

10. I will work for the passage of The Family Preservation Act. Under the act, children could not be permanently removed from the home of the biological parents without a jury finding of child abuse.

THE REFORM PARTY SUPPORTS:

1. Strict observance of the limitations placed on government by the Federal and State Constitutions.

2. Term limits-two terms in the Senate three in the House of Representatives.

3. Lobbying Reform- which would require that Elected and appointed public officials could not be allowed to lobby their former colleagues for five years after leaving office.

4. Withdrawal from encumbering treaties such as NAFTA and GATT..
