ABOUT ALAN STOUT
Alan is a third-generation Oregonian from a family of foresters, military pilots, small business owners, and artists. Alan currently wholesales building materials, including wood and steel rebar, for some of Oregon’s largest mills and manufacturers. Alan and his wife Angela raise their four young children in Springfield. In his spare time, he leads a church choir in Springfield and is an avid fly fisherman.
ALAN FIGHTS FOR SPRINGFIELD FAMILIES
Springfield is only as strong as its families. Democrat policies have pushed hundreds of local families to leave Oregon and its schools due to lack of affordability, restrictions on our basic freedoms, and poor educational support. Alan will not rest until every family in Springfield is thriving.
SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESS
Current tax policies and unhelpful mandates have driven up costs for our employers and kept local wages low. Alan understands what needs to be done to protect workers, lower tax burdens, and remove harmful regulations so that Springfield can grow strong.
PROTECTING THE COMMUNITY
Springfield’s police and firefighters are crucial partners for keeping our families safe. Instead of radical policies, Alan will push to protect local control and accountability for our police and fire departments.
SUPPORT FOR TEACHERS, SUPPORT FOR PARENTS
Teachers and parents have been pushed beyond their limits by the current administration’s COVID policies and fruitless requirements from the state Capitol. We need educational options that inspire and engage, not erase standards. Alan will support teachers and parents working together at the local level.
MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT AND SOLUTIONS TO HOMELESSNESS
We must support mental health services for all, from stressed parents to those who are homeless or suffering from addiction. Current policies invite us to bury our heads in the sand and refuse to help those most vulnerable. Changing our approach will require a change in leadership.
