PRIORITIZING OUR KIDS, NOT POLITICS

Oregon leaders are failing to fully fund our schools, lowering graduation standards, and removing our parental rights to know what’s best for our kids. We need to prioritize our students and stop treating them like political weapons.

RESTORING LAW AND ORDER TO KEEP US SAFE

I’ve dedicated my life to public service in law enforcement, and know what it takes to keep communities safe to raise our families. Being soft on crime is a risk we can’t afford, and it’s time the legislature stepped-up to fully support our public safety professionals.

MENTAL HEALTH SOLUTIONS THAT WORK

I have watched our mental health system spiral into crisis, and our communities are suffering. We have to address difficult challenges with realistic solutions, and that starts with treating opioid addiction as a public safety issue. We must prioritize treatment as an alternative to jail time and invest in the facilities necessary for meaningful recovery.

KEEPING GOVERNMENT IN CHECK

I’ve seen first-hand how devastating the lockdowns, long quarantines, and vaccine mandates have been on our police and fire services ability to keep our communities safe. We must take action to ensure the proper balance of power is restored and get back to addressing the critical needs of Oregonians.
