    "Lynn Howe knows Oregon families are hurting and our elected officials just don't get it. The politicians seem more interested in finger-pointing than tackling our problems. Lynn will work for common-sense solutions to create more clean industry jobs in the Rogue Valley and increase state loans for small businesses. She'll push for more accountability for banks so we can avoid another mortgage crisis." Kathy Mustard, local business owner

    "As a nurse for over 30 years, Lynn has the right experience to make health care better for our families. She will push for reforms to finally rein in costs and force insurance companies to put patients first, not just profits." Terri Lynn Schroeder, registered nurse

    "Lynn understands great schools are a necessity for the future of our children and success of our economy. Lynn will work to support new programs for our community colleges and universities, finally stabilize school funding and provide the critical training we need to keep jobs in the Rogue Valley." T.J. Murphy, 4th grade teacher

    "If you lose your job or your home, it doesn't matter whether you're a Democrat or Republican. Partisan fighting and career politicians won't help our families or get Medford back on track. I'm a nurse, not a politician. I'm ready to roll up my sleeves and bring fresh ideas and independent leadership to Salem." -Lynn Howe
