Open Letter to the Voters of District #47 . . .

Dear Friends,

If you are tired of hearing about how effective our representation has been in Salem, while still being faced with continual threats of higher taxes, more regulations and no noticeable improvement in the problems facing the South Coast, I ask for your vote on November 3rd.

My pledge to you is that I will:

*** Support protecting the taxpayer through more efficient use of tax dollars with emphasis upon maintaining local level programs rather than tax increases.

*** Continue to work for aggressive Economic Development and infrastructure improvements.

*** Work to decreased regulations and mandates upon our local businesses to promote increased jobs.

*** Be consistent with my local anti-drug stand and how I vote in Salem.

*** Support Tough on Crime measures to make our neighborhoods are safe.

*** Support our local schools through stable funding and local control.

*** Support fair solutions to transportation needs.

*** Work hard and stay focused upon our future!

Thank you for your support.
