LET'S GET TO WORK
Last year, Chris Edwards got to work for us. And he's ready to keep working hard on our priorities.
LET'S GET TO WORK to create good-paying jobs
Chris Edwards will create more good paying jobs by investing in vocational education and worker training in skilled trades and growing industries.
LET'S GET TO WORK to make health care more affordable
Chris Edwards will work to increase accountability and transparency in the health care system by requiring health insurance companies to account for administrative costs and follow consistent pricing guidelines.
LET'S GET TO WORK to strengthen our schools
As a small businessman, Chris Edwards knows that to prepare our kids for good paying jobs, we should reduce class sizes and increase education options. That's why he'll work to control spending, so that our priorities have the funding they need.
LET'S GET TO WORK to keep our neighborhoods safe
Chris Edwards will crack down on the theft and illegal reselling of scrap metal, which meth abusers use to support their addiction.
LET'S GET TO WORK for our veterans who've served us with honor
Chris Edwards has a plan to help Oregon's combat veterans who are returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan get the educational, medical, and housing support they need to resume their lives.
