Kathy is not a career politician, but rather a small business leader. She has been a nursery owner for 30 years, balancing the budget and growing the company year after year. “Career politicians are afraid to tackle controversial issues. They’re only interested in re-election. I will rise to the challenges ahead of us and address Oregon’s problems with a common sense approach that will benefit job creation, strengthen our economy and bring state spending under control.”
Kathy LeCompte: Understands Economics and How to Create Local Jobs
Kathy has experience with economics, creating jobs and managing international trade issues that affect Oregon’s ability to be more competitive. Kathy wants Oregon to be a leader for job creation, not the national leader in unemployment. We need local jobs and a stronger economy, not higher taxes & job strangling regulations.
Kathy LeCompte: New Taxes are Not the Answer
Oregonians should be outraged with political leaders that continually vote for more taxes on working families. Our current representative should be ashamed for supporting nearly $2 billion in new taxes & fees on our citizens. We don’t need new taxes, we need to get more out of our government services and cut the waste.
