Leadership for a Better Oregon
Reducing our high unemployment rate and getting people back to work is Bruce Hanna’s top priority. Bruce is committed to getting our economy back on track by creating an environment in which businesses can thrive. He has sponsored legislation that would create thousands of jobs and he will continue to fight for policies that make it easier for businesses to hire workers.
Controlling Government Growth
As a small business owner, Bruce knows that you can’t increase spending without accountability or the means to pay for it. Bruce is a strong advocate for ending the unsustainable growth in our state budget, and he opposes increasing taxes. Bruce will continue to fight for budgets based on priorities, for greater oversight of government spending, and for the protection of critical programs like education and public safety.
Putting People Before Government
As a father, grandfather, husband and community leader, Bruce Hanna knows that safe neighborhoods, quality education and access to affordable healthcare are critical. Bruce has supported legislation that would make health insurance more affordable, direct the state to save more money, and provide tax relief for low-income Oregonians. He opposes unnecessary cuts to education and irresponsible policies like those that would make it easier for dangerous criminals to get out of prison.
“It is an honor to be your State Representative. You deserve experienced leadership committed to creating jobs and restoring our quality of life. I will continue working hard to create a thriving economy, a world-class education system, safer communities, and a sensible approach to managing natural resources.” -Bruce Hanna
