Gordon Anderson on Issues:

I've worked hard as your legislator to limit taxes, create jobs, cut the huge costs of PERS and make the Oregon Health Plan cost-effective, while preserving patient access.

As a Member of the Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee, I have a strong voice in getting family wage jobs back in our forests. Better jobs support funding for schools. Serving on the Joint Legislative Audit Committee, I support cuts for overstaffed government agencies.

I would appreciate your vote.
