State Representative
7TH DISTRICT

BILL WITT
Republican

OCCUPATION: Business executive

OCCUPATIONAL BACKGROUND: President, Wittco Systems Inc., 1979-present.

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND: B.A., History, Case Western Reserve Univ.; law degree, University of Chicago Law School.

PRIOR GOVERNMENTAL EXPERIENCE: None.

I look forward to using my business and political knowledge with my community experience to effectively serve the people of Oregon.

My legislative priorities will be the following:

I support an overall tax reduction for Oregon families and small business owners.

  • Cutting government growth

I will work to eliminate waste and bureaucracy. Many services should be privatized and inefficient departments should be held fiscally accountable.

  • Reforming education

I will work for responsible charter school legislation as well as full funding for our public schools. I also support building our university system to world-class quality.

  • Fighting crime

I support tougher sentences for those who commit property crimes, boot camps for teens who engage in crime and capital punishment for murderers.

  • Protecting our environment

I am committed to reducing the use of toxic chemicals, preserving old growth forests, restoring rivers and streams and holding polluters accountable.

  • Improving transportation

I support a balanced transportation system involving road improvement and expansion together with an efficient mass transportation program.

* Upholding the family

I believe the family is the building block of our nation. I will work to lower the tax burden on families, provide for parental choice in education and respect the right of parents to be involved in critical decisions involving their children.

    • Defending marriage
  • will work to pass legislation that defines marriage as a union of man and woman. I oppose same-sex marriage or any laws that depreciate the value of traditional marriage.

I believe we can build a more prosperous, more enlightened, more moral Oregon for our children and grandchildren. I look forward to working with you for that objective.

Please give me your vote on November 3.

Thank you.
