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
