I Will Fight to Reign In Crime.

The highest purpose of our police is to secure the life, property, and rights of the people. Like the rest of us, Police must obey the law and be held accountable when they don’t. At the same time, police must be able to enforce the law confident we have their backs. Police should be the wall standing between lawful citizens and criminal activity. We must adequately fund, train, and honor the vast majority of police who serve with honor and heroism.

I Will Address the Homelessness Problem.

Like you, I want to show compassion to people struggling to survive. But widespread homelessness and aggressive panhandling is no answer. Oregonians have a right to clean, safe neighborhoods free of trash and human waste. It’s time to shut down homeless camps and tent communities. At the same time, let’s work with our churches, communities, and networks of shelters and services to make alternatives of homelessness safer and more accessible. Job creation, and training for those who can work is an important step. Mental health issues and substance abuse issues need to be addressed.

I Will Fight to Empower Parents.

Schools and teachers are important, but PARENTS should be the primary directors of their childrens’ education. Parents are the ones who see the talents, skills, needs and dreams of their children. School curriculum, teaching methods, board policies, and other such things must be transparent and easily accessible to parents. Money should follow students into any accredited public, private, charter, or home school chosen by parents. All parents should have access to the same choices, regardless of income. Our schools should be as diverse as our children are.

We know what works. We just need to do it. Elect me and I will.

VOTE!

The most important thing is that you vote.

Balance, Moderation, True Representation

Balance

Oregon needs a more balanced legislature. Supermajority rule is harming this once great state.

  • 34% of registered voters control 62% of the House of Representatives
  • Voters defeated a gross receipts tax; the legislature chose to pass one anyway
  • Oregonians deserve more value for the amount of money we pay in taxes

Moderation

Governing from the middle and bringing all to the table will get Oregon back on track.

  • Partner with business to restore Oregon’s economic strength
  • Reasonable, responsible controls and regulations
  • Long term planning, not knee jerk politically motivated decisions

True Representation

All Oregonians deserve a voice; a few individuals in one party should not control decisions for all.

  • Public schools must work for all, education standards raised, and curriculum input from parents
  • Law enforcement is essential to the well-being of our communities and needs to be supported
  • Homeless crisis across the state is getting worse, not better; we need a comprehensive plan

PUBLIC SAFETY

Everyone has a right to safety, which means not only dedicating resources to prevention, but holding criminals accountable for their actions. We need to strengthen laws that support our police, and follow-through with prosecution. We need to hold back funding to counties whose District Attorney practices catch and release justice with rioters and other criminals.

SUPPORT FOR OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS

I am an unwavering supporter of the right to keep and bear arms. Firearms safety and training should be available to all Oregonians, and legislators need to provide concealed carry reciprocity with other states.

TRANSPORTATION AND TOLLING

We shouldn’t be asking Oregonians to pay for roads twice by tolling existing roads. We need to expand our transportation capacity on roads and bridges, not prioritize bike lanes over infrastructure that carries freight and commuters. When elected, I will introduce legislation to reduce the gas tax until we have a solid plan to fund our highways and bridges.

WILDFIRES AND FORESTRY

We need to manage our forests with policies that allow for thinning of state and federal forests to prevent the widespread devastation that have become commonplace every summer. This will create jobs and prevent the kind of air pollution from smoke that eliminates any gain we’ve made with low carbon policies.

I WILL WORK FOR YOU

It is frustrating to see public officials forget who they work for. I promise to personally return your emails within 24 hours and phone calls within 48. I will be your public representative and serve you with gratitude and distinction.
