    The Clear Choice

    Willamette Week rated the incumbent as the least effective senator in the legislature. We Can Do Better. Dave Mowry has proven to be very effective in working to solve problems facing the state. Senate District 24 deserves effective representation. Dave Mowry is the right person for the job.

    Creating a Strong Economy

    Dave Mowry understands how to create jobs and energize the economy. Unemployment in Oregon is over 12%. That represents over 250,000 real people. Dave's experience will help us come together and grow the economy so we can create jobs for the people of Oregon.


    Dave understands and cares about issues that affect seniors. That is why Dave worked hard to help pass the Emergency Care Package that restored $15 million in cuts for senior citizens.

    Represents the Voters

    Dave is a native Oregonian and has lived in our district for 24 years. Dave has a long and deep understanding of senate district 24, its people and issues. That's why Dave wants to create jobs and fund education first. Funding education first will create smaller class sizes and keep the education budget from being used as a political football by Salem special interests.


    "Dave Mowry is a candidate who transcends politics, stands up to special interests, and has the vision to do what is truly best for the state of Oregon. That is why I am endorsing Dave for state senator." Jeff Caton

    I would be honored to have your vote.

    Sincerely, Dave Mowry
