BRAD AVAKIAN: PRIORITIES, NOT POLITICS

That's the principle Brad Avakian lives by -- even when he has to take a little heat for it. When the Legislature was neglecting our schools, Brad fought for a full funding plan to stop education cuts. To provide rural Oregon with the water it needs, Brad brought together conservationists and industry to get the job done. And when big corporations weren't providing fair wages and good working conditions, Brad stood up for us.

Good thing that Brad is more concerned with our priorities than politics. With the economy in trouble, we need a champion to help us put Oregon back on track.
