Not a Professional Politician but an Advocate for our Community
Jobs not lip service
The unemployment rate for Deschutes County tops 14%. Restoring real sustainable jobs that have long-term viability to Central Oregon is my first priority.
We shouldn't have to hold our breath every time we take a drive on Highway 97. We must stop drug lords who see our county as an easy access point for trafficking. Transportation funding needs to come to us not Portland, so our highways are safe for our families. Law enforcement needs the tools to keep our communities safe.
More health care solutions not problems
As if we haven't said it enough but our families shouldn't be one health care emergency away from financial ruin. We must rein in our system and protect those who matter most to us.
Put the protection back in consumer protection
No more bailing out NYC corporations. Oregon families shouldn't have to worry about consumer fraud. As your representative I will stand up for consumers and small business owners that need financial stability, not the banks that get bailed out.
They were there for us, let's be there for them
As a veteran, I know first hand the issues and problems facing our brave veterans. They deserve better and I am the one who can help meet their needs.
"Somewhere along the way politicians stopping working for us. Let's stand up to them. As an advocate for all people in our community I'll start a new tradition of working for us in Deschutes Co. rather than those in Salem."-John Huddle
