Tim McCloud

Occupation: Professional

Occupational Background: Administration

Educational Background: Eastern Oregon University

Prior Governmental Experience: Local and State

McCloud is a working class American who has overcome homelessness while raising a family, attending school full time, and running a business; not a lifelong politician with a multi-million dollar advertising campaign. In his life, Tim stands firm against bullying and discrimination. As Governor, McCloud will stand strong for the freedom of all Oregonians and against discrimination. Raised by his mom and grandma, Tim was shaped with compassion from a young age and taught to protect others. A husband, father of 3 daughters, and brother to 3 sisters, he’ll fight for women’s issues.

McCloud has advocated for vulnerable Oregonians: seniors, individuals with disabilities, foster youth, individuals with mental health issues, and persons in economic crisis. Tim has experience championing for children and families in the courts and foster care systems. His leadership in community events and local commissions prepared him for making tough decisions. McCloud will roll up his sleeves for greater access to individual healthcare options for our seniors, veterans, and the medically fragile.

McCloud is committed to getting Oregon back to work; keeping schools open, thriving small businesses, and affordable quality childcare. As a former small business owner, Tim understands the time, expense, and difficulty it takes to operate a business in Oregon. Tim believes that businesses, great paying jobs, safer neighborhoods and a thriving economy are essential to our communities. As Governor of Oregon, Tim will listen to Oregonians: on our environment, economy and ways of life, because every Oregonian matters. God bless Oregon and the United States of America.

Como Gobernador de Oregón, Tim McCloud reducirá el costo de vida, mejorará la educación de los estudiantes y creará caminos hacia el estatus de ciudadanía. Conduciré para mejorar nuestro entorno natural y nuestra economía. Queremos mejores trabajos y viviendas, más libertad y calles más seguras. ¡Dios nos bendiga, Oregon y a los Estados Unidos de América!

Tobias Read

Occupation: State Treasurer

Occupational Background: Oregon Treasurer, Oregon State Representative

Educational Background: University of Washington, MBA; Willamette University, BA.

Prior Governmental Experience: 2017-present; State Representative, 2007-2016

“I’m frustrated with where Oregon is today. We must urgently provide homeless Oregonians with safe, stable housing and access to mental health and addiction services while cleaning up our public spaces; get illegal guns off our streets and reduce gun violence; and make sure schools stay open, so our kids don’t fall further behind. As governor, I will challenge the status quo in Salem to create a brighter future for all.”

– Treasurer Tobias Read

A Vision for a Stronger Oregon

A parent of two kids in public schools, Treasurer Read believes we should measure Oregon’s progress by the well-being of our kids. As governor, he will create a universal pre-K program for every child, expand access to affordable childcare, and make raising literacy and graduation rates a top priority. He’ll build more housing of all types to bring down the cost of living, get tough on gun violence, and continue Oregon’s leadership in investing in clean energy to combat climate change.

A Record of Results

Treasurer Read created a program that helped more than 100,000 Oregonians save over $150 million for retirement, and tens of thousands save for college. He’s cut Wall Street fees, saving taxpayers more than $500 million. He’s doubled the state’s investment in clean energy, and led the charge to create the Elliott State Research Forest. As a legislator, he was a leader in passing full-day kindergarten and establishing Oregon’s rainy day fund.

“Oregon needs a Governor with a statewide record of tackling tough issues, delivering results, and fighting for Oregonians living in every corner of this great state. That’s why I’m supporting Tobias. Oregon needs his proven and steady leadership.”
