CARL WILSON ... LEADERSHIP THAT WORKS

Carl grew up in Josephine County ... he knows the issues that confront our community. He and his wife Malinda raised their two children here ... he knows the importance of quality education and the need for family wage jobs. Carl's community service has given him a strong foundation in working with people toward building a healthy community.

CARL WILSON ... EXPERIENCE THAT COUNTS

As co-owner of a small business, Carl has successfully managed budgets and priorities. This led the Grants Pass Daily Courier to say: "Dealing with money and living within a budget would be nothing new for Wilson, who has to do it every day as part-owner of the family's two stations." (1/13/98) Carl's experience on the Legislative Transportation and Agency Oversight Committees will serve our community well.

CARL WILSON ... ON THE ISSUES WE CARE ABOUT

On Education: "Public Schools must be adequately funded. Teachers must be free to use their talents to teach in disciplined classrooms. In return, as taxpayers, we must demand excellence - an effective, relevant curriculum that prepares students for the next millennium."

On Crime: "We're finally building the prisons to punish criminals. Now we must take the next step which is a serious dialogue that addresses why our prisons are filling up ... subjects that include drug abuse, domestic violence and the breakup of the family."

On Taxes: "Government has a seemingly endless appetite for our tax dollars. The Oregon Legislature must do what you and I do ... live within our budget, spend our dollars based on priorities and work to get the most out of every dollar."

CARL WILSON ... EXPERIENCE WE KNOW - LEADERSHIP WE TRUST
