    As an Oregonian I believe in respecting every individual. *(As your State Senator, I will take initiative in fighting for you)*. We must all work together *(with integrity)* to ensure the well being of all of Oregon.

    A Senator that will work for all Oregonians

    As your State Senator my priorities will be:

    • Extend unemployment benefits to out-of work Oregonians
    • Provide better access to education, health care and jobs to our returning troops
    • Make sure seniors and disabled Oregonians can remain in their own homes

    Protect the natural places that make Oregon special

    • Protect Oregon's waterways, parks beaches and watersheds
    • Eliminate toxic chemicals from drinking water and our food supply
