    “A representative works for the people. Not the government or the powerful elite, only the people! -Wally Hicks

    Born Fighter

    A native Oregonian, Wally was born to a hard working family that fought to make ends meet. In Iraq, Wally joined the fight to protect our nation. In Washington D.C., Wally fought to protect America by enforcing our immigration laws. In Josephine County, Wally currently fights to protect our community from criminals and felons. As your Representative, Wally will fight to protect our constitution, to protect your paycheck and to protect your job.

    Repairing Government

    Oregon needs a government that does a couple of things well instead of one that does many things poorly. The government must protect jobs and protect people. Wally will fight for lower taxes, better treatment of small businesses, decentralized land use decisions, and adequate support for our criminal justice system. Wally will take common sense from Josephine County up the road to Salem.

    “Our community deserves a government that is open, honest and transparent. As your State Representative, I will run my office according to these principals. When you need help cutting through frustrating red tape, my door is always open.”
    - Wally Hicks
