We all know someone who’s lost their job and is concerned about their family’s future. Shawn will promote pro-job-creation policies that support Oregon’s family-owned businesses.

“Shawn Lindsay will work for new incentives that help local employers create jobs by allowing them to defer state taxes on new jobs until the economy rebounds.”

-Deanna Palm, Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce


Education, above all other budgets, must be the Legislature’s top priority. Shawn believes that the education budget should be one of the first passed.

“Shawn understands the urgency of stable and sufficient education funding. He will hit the ground running on education issues.”

-John Peterson, Hillsboro School Board Vice-Chair


With the state facing a $2.7 billion budget deficit, government must tighten its belt just like local families. State spending has increased by over 40% in the past four years yet few families have seen the same increase in their household budgets.

“Shawn has experience working with complex situations to find solutions and develop consensus to solve problems -- skills are in short supply in Salem. We need Shawn in the Oregon House of Representatives.”

-Dick Inukai, Dick’s Auto Group
