A record of Experience and Commitment
As a new retiree I seek the opportunity to give something back and I have the time to commit fully to representing you! I have a broad range of experience working with both the private and public sectors. My experience includes over 30-years representing my fellow citizens on various community boards and commissions, including ten prior years of service in the Oregon legislature. Most recently, Governors Kitzhaber and Kulongoski asked me to serve as Oregon's Public Utility Commissioner. During those nine years of service, I helped customers save over $600 million in rate increases while assuring that everyone was provided with quality services.
My commitment is to assure that your hard-earned tax dollars are used efficiently and effectively. I will make sure your state government works for you, not against you.
I understand the legislative process and will diligently attend to each bill and amendment that comes across my desk; but my priorities are:
. Rebuilding the Oregon economy and creating job opportunities for Oregon families.
. Assuring that our children receive quality education from kindergarten to college.
. Addressing the rising cost and availability of health care.
. Providing for the disabled and senior citizens
I promise you my full attention as your state senator. I look forward to hearing your ideas or concerns.
I would appreciate your support and your vote.
