ABOUT GINA MUNSTER MOORE
My family and I moved to Northwestern Hillsboro back in 1974. We landed on a small 8 acre farm in Helvetia. This was when Hillsboro had addresses like Route 61-S. We finally were able to buy horses, chickens and ducks. I grew up taking part in horse 4-H. I started my first year in the Hillsboro School district at West Union Elementary. I was a Washington County Junior Rodeo Court Princess in 1978.
I have two grown daughters and own a small business in Hillsboro.
FIGHTING FOR WESTERN WASHINGTON COUNTY
We must have a strong voice for our Forest Grove, Cornelius and West Hillsboro area. I will not be “just” another vote for the Governor or Democrat leadership, instead I will work to represent the people here, not Portland.
SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESS
Our community is made up of a large amount of small businesses. I will be a fierce advocate in helping them be successful. Helping them keep employees, lowering their tax burden, and removing harmful regulations.
PROTECTING THE COMMUNITY
We must be supporting our local police departments and fire departments. I will be a strong advocate for our police departments so they have the resources to keep our community safe.
LOCAL CONTROL AND STANDARDS FOR EDUCATION
There needs to be a check and balance in our education system, that is local control of our school boards. Salem should not be dictating what our local school board can handle themselves. I will also push for achievable standards in our education system.
WORKING FOR MEANINGFUL TRANSPORTATION STRATEGIES
We must invest in better streets and transportation corridors in West Washington County. With the increased number of people moving to our communities, we need to help our local cities with funding.
