THREE REASONS TO CAST YOUR BALLOT
FOR JIM FELDKAMP
1. Winning the war on terror.
Attacks of 9/11 proved we must take the war to our foes overseas or we will fight that war in our cities.
Jim Feldkamp understands our armed forces deserve good pay, the best training and the best equipment and benefits for our vets, and that our law enforcement agencies must have the tools they need to safeguard our loved ones.
Incumbent Peter DeFazio voted to slash the intelligence budget throughout the 90's, voted against the Patriot Act, and has voted time and again to gut our armed forces.
2. Creating Jobs
Oregon has an unacceptably high rate of unemployment. As a pro-business Congressman, Jim Feldkamp has a vision to revitalize the poor economy better infrastructure, improved port facilities, a realistic approach to managing our resources and protecting the environment. Creating new jobs and protecting current jobs will be Jim's first priority.
Peter DeFazio's sided too often with the extreme environmentalists against Oregon jobs; since DeFazio took office we've lost over 9,000 jobs in the timber industry alone. His ratings with the National Federation of Small Businessmen and the Chamber of Commerce are among the worst in Congress.
3. Jim Feldkamp
A native Oregonian, Jim Feldkamp knows that Oregon jobs and families come first. As a combat veteran and a former FBI counter-terrorism agent, Jim knows what needs to be done to protect our families and win the war on terror. Jim Feldkamp won't forget who is or where he's from.
Don't just hope for a better, safer Oregon
