We must write the next great Oregon Story. Throughout history, Oregon has had leaders and citizens that stepped forward and took bold actions. They made Oregon an amazing place to live.

It's time to step forward once again.

We face great challenges in Oregon. And confronting these challenges requires new leadership, new energy and new ideas - ideas that look to the future instead of the past. My vision:

Put Oregonians Back to Work

The time has come to create a state bank and declare economic sovereignty from multi-national banks.

The Bank of Oregon would keep Oregon money in Oregon providing small businesses with much needed capital to grow their business and put Oregonians back to work.

Fully Fund Education.

Some have given up on achieving stable funding for education, but I have not. I have a plan: 1) Reform the kicker, dedicating the money to a rainy day fund; and 2) Eliminate tax loopholes to boost education funding.

Protect the Environment

The protection of our natural areas and natural resources is a moral and economic imperative. I'm the only candidate who opposes Liquified Natural Gas terminals and called for the closing of the dirty Boardman Coal Plant.

That is my vision for Oregon.

An Oregon where we create good jobs, fully fund education, and protect the environment.
