It's time to expect more

The past few years have proven that the career politicians have the wrong priorities. Instead of fixing our problems, they spend their time catering to special interests, watching things get worse.

It's time to expect more from our State Senator.

"Dan Rayfield has the vision, the energy, and the commitment to be the kind of state senator we should expect."
Congressman Peter DeFazio

Dan Rayfield's top priority is improving the economy

. Invest in tomorrow's renewable energy technology to create good-paying   jobs today.
. Offer grants and loans for small businesses that increase hiring and   payrolls.
. End lucrative taxpayer-financed handouts to out-of-state corporations.

Dan Rayfield has the right education plan

. Give more children the opportunity to start their educations off right with   Head Start.
. Reduce class sizes to increase student performance.
. Invest in universities and community colleges to build a skilled   workforce and create jobs through innovation.

"Dan Rayfield's economic plan is right for our economy because it starts with high-quality education and ends with making small businesses a priority."
Steve Shields, former Hewlett-Packard executive

Dan Rayfield is focused on affordable health care

. Expand health insurance options to reduce health care costs for small   businesses and families.
. Fund in-home care, adult foster care, and assisted living so that   seniors aren't forced into nursing homes.

Dan Rayfield will protect our environment

. Defend our farms and forestlands from strip malls and subdivisions
. Hold polluters accountable when they spoil our air and drinking water.
. Ban toxic chemicals from being used in children's products.

We're supporting Dan Rayfield!
