BRAD AVAKIAN. A COMMITMENT TO OUR COMMUNITY. AN EFFECTIVE VOICE FOR OUR FAMILIES.

Whether helping seniors to get Social Security checks as a volunteer for the Senior Law Center, starting a music school, or creating a juvenile restitution program, Brad has been getting results for us for the last 27 years.

This is why Brad is endorsed by Senator Ron Wyden.

AN EFFECTIVE VOICE FOR OUR CHILDREN

Brad and Debbie Avakian have two great reasons to ensure our children get the best education possible--their own children, Nathan and Claire.

Brad's plan for our schools includes:

Brad believes so strongly in our children's education that when the legislature forced schools to cut funding for music, Brad helped form Southwest Music School, without any tax dollars.

Endorsement: Beaverton Education Association.

PREVENTING JUVENILE CRIME

Brad understands juveniles must be held accountable for their actions. That's why he created a local YMCA program requiring juvenile offenders to get jobs and training so they could pay back the victims of their crimes.

As a former juvenile counselor, Brad will be an effective leader in the prevention of juvenile crime.

PRESERVING OUR QUALITY OF LIFE

Brad Avakian believes in preserving our farm and forest lands by slowing urban growth, protecting state parks from commercial development, and maintaining clean air and water.
