George Bell for State Representative Our Values. Real Leadership.

George Bell has given a lifetime of service to his neighbors, his community and Oregon. Rarely have we had a chance to elect a person of such uncommon integrity, commitment and experience.

Most important, George Bell is a leader who represents our mainstream values and concerns. Instead of political grandstanding, he will fight for solutions that work. As our next State Representative, George will fight for the things that are important to us:

A Smarter Attack on Crime - George believes to reduce crime we have to be tough - and smart. While punishing dangerous criminals we must also prevent juvenile crime, make young offenders accountable to their victims, and make it easier for neighborhoods to shut down drug houses or meth labs.

Strong Schools and High Standards - The best way to make sure kids stay out of trouble is to make sure they get a good start in life. Expand Head Start, so they get to school ready to learn. Hold our students to high standards and make sure our tax dollars get to the classroom, where it counts.

Fighting for Us - Instead of looking out for special interests, George will fight for things like an HMO Patients Bill of Rights and making polluters - not taxpayers - clean up the mess they make.

"George Bell offers leadership in the best Oregon tradition. He's the right choice for State Representative." - Governor John Kitzhaber, M.D.
