TERRY BEYER: A Practical Voice for Springfield
in the State Capitol

Dear Neighbor,

It has been my honor to work for you since 2001. While at times very challenging, I have fought hard to protect your interests and make progress on priority issues. In the last session I brought state stimulus projects to our district, improving our community colleges and public spaces. I worked to protect school funding and expand healthcare to thousands of uninsured Oregon children. I am particularly proud of my leadership in transportation, which has put thousands of people to work updating our roads and bridges, cutting down on congestion and spurring economic growth now and in the future.

But the job is not done. I stand ready to continue to fight during the 2011 legislative session to:

  • Create good jobs and strengthen Oregon’s economy,

  • Ensure our children get the education they need and deserve to be successful – AND – insisting on proven results from educators, and

  • Controlling the increasing cost of health care and expanding access.

“Terry Beyer has been a tireless advocate for Springfield. I am proud to call her my Representative.”
-Peter DeFazio

I bring a practical, common sense approach to issues before the Legislature. My desire is to make government accountable, responsive and leaner. I know how hard everyone works to support their household budget. I take that same attitude to Salem, working hard to tighten the state’s budget. You deserve to know your tax dollars are spent wisely.

There is no greater honor than serving as your Representative. I humbly thank you. Please call on me at any time.
