Putting Central Oregon Front and Center
Keeping Bend Open for Business
Communities around Oregon are in trouble, but Bend has been hit especially hard. Judy knows the key to turning things around is to protect our jobs, our economy and our way of life.
- Led the fight against a higher beer tax that would have hurt local breweries.
- Kept our tax dollars in our city by allowing local governments to invest more funds in local credit unions.
- Established BOOST fund to give loans and grants to small businesses creating new jobs and hiring Oregonians.
Keeping Bend Working
Judy understands our natural resources make Bend a wonderful place to live, work and do business. She knows we shouldn't have to choose between a strong economy and a clean environment.
- Preserved habitat and recreation on the Skyline Forest while maintaining the potential for jobs through sustainable timber harvests.
- Bolstered Oregon's solar industry with laws encouraging solar energy production.
Protecting Central Oregon
Nothing is more critical to the wellbeing of a community than our children and their future. Judy has spent a lifetime protecting both.
- Led the fight to keep OSU Cascades Campus open.
- Secured increased funding for COCC.
- Demanded stronger enforcement and training on child-abuse reporting laws.
- Protected funding for K-12 and expanded healthcare for 80,000 children.
"Too many politicians are willing to gamble with our future and play partisan politics. I've worked to make sure the folks over the mountain don't forget about Bend. I'll keep reaching across the aisle for independent solutions to protect our families."
