JOBS = QUALITY OF LIFE
"Oregon has so much going for it, but, for too long our political leaders have made job creation and economic growth an after-thought rather than the central focus of our quality of life. As your Governor, I'll put jobs first and will bring long overdue change to state government."
JOBS FIRST: OREGON'S RECOVERY PLAN
When an Oregonian loses a job, Oregon loses a taxpayer. That's why getting people back to work isn't just critical for individuals and families; it's the only way we can ensure adequate funding for schools and other government services.
1) Promote Private Sector Job Creation
- Tax relief for businesses, investors, entrepreneurs
- Transform higher education
- Promote sustainable natural resource industries
2) Control State Spending and Reform Government
- End automatic budget increases
- Hold the line on taxes
- Control growing government health care and pension costs
3) Better Educate for Our Economic Future
- Fund K-12 budget first; strengthen rainy day savings
- Improve student performance with teacher training, accountability reforms
4) Rebuild Public Trust in Government
- Return kicker refunds to taxpayers
- Refresh state government with new people, new attitudes
- Town Hall meetings every year in every county
Oregon Farmers Endorse Chris Dudley
"Chris Dudley's an outsider who can bring a fresh approach to a stale government. His plan for jobs, jobs, jobs is exactly what we need right now. The Oregon Farm Bureau endorses Chris and urges all Oregonians to
do the same."
Barry Bushue, president, Oregon Farm Bureau Federation
