Bill Garrard is asking for your vote to return him to the House of Representatives for a sixth term. NO NEW TAXES! We need to create jobs In the Basin and in Oregon. We need to do all we can do to help existing business grow and to lure new business to our area. Our state's current budget is unsustainable. The state must learn to live within its means, while, at the same time, providing public safety, adequate health care and a reserve for that rainy day. As a member of the Ways and Means Committee for the past four years he has learned that there is a way to achieve that goal. He believes very strongly in fighting for personal property rights and adequate funding for education including Klamath Community College and OIT, seniors and programs for the disabled. Bill Garrard has the experience to help lead in our state's economic recovery. We need to send him back to Salem.
A grandfather of eight, he believes that family is the foundation of our society.
Bill Garrard asks for your vote and continued permission to represent you in the Oregon Legislature. He's proven to be trustworthy, honest and reliable.
