Paul Holvey- A Representative For Oregon!

As your Representative, Paul Holvey believes every Oregonian has the right to a state government that helps them live their dreams and pursue opportunities for a good life. Paul is working for a better standard of living for Oregonians, and a safe, healthy environment to live in.

An Oregon That Works

Paul knows education is the cornerstone of our future. Oregon must provide the revenue necessary to fully fund K-12, community colleges, and our universities to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for tomorrow's economy. Paul understands living wage jobs and a good business climate are vital for a healthy community. Paul will work to ensure Oregon's investments in our economy return real benefits to Oregonians.

A Compassionate Oregon

Paul believes the vulnerable and less fortunate deserve shelter and a life with dignity. He will continue to fight for affordable and accessible healthcare. Paul supports human and civil rights, workers' rights, and women's right to reproductive choice. He will fight to protect our Constitution and our freedoms.

A Fair Oregon

State government should support the essential services that Oregonians need. Paul knows this can be accomplished with fiscal responsibility, government accountability, a fair revenue system, and elimination of tax giveaways for the wealthy. It is time for tax reform that does not burden working families and provides stable revenues and adequate reserves for Oregon.

The Oregon AFL-CIO awarded Paul the Gold Medal for Leadership in the 2007 Legislative Session and designated him as a "Working Families Champion".
