My family has lived on the southern Oregon Coast for four generations. I have served my community proudly for more than twenty years striving to make this district a better place to work, raise a family, and get a good education. I’ve worked hard during my first term in Salem to help hire back teachers and energize our economy, but I’m not finished. I would be honored to keep working on your behalf to get the South Coast back on track.
Too many of our young families are out of work or have been forced to leave the area. Many of our children continue to lack the resources they need to come to school ready to learn. Budgets for the critical services our elderly and vulnerable populations rely on remain at risk as our economic recovery lags behind that of the metro area.
Solving these problems will take strong leadership and a willingness to put partisan politics aside to do what’s best for Oregonians. I’ll work with anyone in Salem with good ideas to create jobs and build a strong economy on the South Coast so we can invest in our children’s futures, keep our communities safe and ensure seniors and all Oregonians have access to the care they deserve.
I am eager to continue serving as a strong advocate for Coos, Douglas, Lane and Lincoln counties. I hope that I can count on your support, and your vote, as we work together to build a successful campaign!
