TIM KNOPP...MAKING EDUCATION HIS NUMBER ONE PRIORITY

We must fund education first and we need to get more out of tax dollars we currently spend. That's why I support moving more money into the classroom to keep class sizes down. Our academic focus should be on the basics--reading, writing, science and math. Teachers should be given the authority to remove unruly and disruptive students from the classroom. Education is about the future and I don't want to see one child fall through the cracks.

TIM KNOPP...FIGHTING FOR LOW TAXES

I support returning over-collected income taxes ("the Kicker") to their rightful owner, taxpayers. I will also work to make sure that any overcharge on property taxes is returned to you. We need more family wage jobs, not more taxes.

TIM KNOPP...WORKING TO MAKE OUR NEIGHBORHOODS SAFE

"Tim is a strong supporter of law enforcement. He believes in mandatory minimum sentences and trying violent juvenile offenders as adults. He has been endorsed by the Oregon State Police Officers' Association--that's important to me."
Daren Parker Captain and 27 Year Veteran of the Oregon State Police-Ret.

TIM KNOPP...STRONGLY SUPPORTED BY SENIORS

"Tim Knopp cares about senior health care, retirement and transportation issues that are important to us. He will be a solid advocate for our seniors in Salem and he has my vote."
Mrs. Robert H. Foley 79 year resident of Central Oregon.
