Michael Bieker: Putting Oregon Back on the Right Track
Creating Jobs, Growing Our Economy
As State Representative, Michael will support small businesses by creating an environment where they can succeed and hire more workers. Improving the economy is the only way our state government can generate the revenue it needs to fund essential services.
Education - Our Best Long Term Investment
As the father of a young child (and another on the way)
Michael Bieker is concerned that student achievement is falling while our drop-out rate is rising. Michael Bieker supports putting more dollars directly into classrooms, mandatory performance auditing for schools, and more professional development for teachers.
As a health care consultant, Michael Bieker has helped medical providers be in a position to better serve their patients, hire more nurses, and afford new-life saving equipment. As State Representative, Michael will use his experience to fix costly inefficiencies in our health care system and support reforms that will help more Oregonians afford health insurance.
"I'm blessed to live in the best state in the union. However, like most people, I'm concerned about the future of our state. Oregon suffers from chronic unemployment, and the state government's unsustainable spending is driving us towards bankruptcy. Let's focus on solutions that will make Oregon the best it can be. Please join me." - Michael Bieker
