It's time to call the doctor
After decades of ignoring the needs of rural Oregon and leading us into the worst recession in recent memory, one thing is clear: The current crop of career politicians in Salem has failed.
Dr. Rodney Orr is a doctor, not a politician. And he's just who we need to start putting our economy -- and our future -- back together again.
Improving the rural economy
Silverton, Molalla, and every other town in Oregon have plenty of talented, hardworking people. Dr. Rodney Orr will work to bring good-paying jobs to our towns without changing the character of our communities.
Helping family farms
If we elect Dr. Rodney Orr, we'll have a strong champion for family farms in the Legislature. He'll make sure our concerns don't get lost in the shuffle of dealing with the needs of urban regions.
Making health care more affordable
After decades of seeing medical emergencies wreck his patients' finances, Dr. Rodney Orr places reducing health care costs at the top of his health care agenda.
Cutting government waste
We can't spend all the money we've got during flush times and suffer massive cuts in tough times. Dr. Rodney Orr supports aggressive audits of government programs to make sure taxpayer dollars are spent wisely.
