Ready to Turn Things Around for Oregon.
FUNDING SCHOOLS FIRST
As a teacher, Larry's priority is to stabilize school funding without overburdening taxpayers. He believes adequate K-12 and higher education funding and reasonable class sizes are essential for providing our state with a skilled and educated workforce.
"Larry Galizio will make sure funding is directed where it's needed most - the classroom. Our community needs him in Salem." Cathy Gwinn, local teacher
REVITALIZING OREGON'S ECONOMY
Larry will promote small business growth and job creation. He believes that during tough economic times, our state should live within its means by using your tax dollars more efficiently. As our representative, he will prioritize jobs and essential programs and will reduce the tax burden on small businesses and families.
"Larry Galizio will work hard to create jobs and will balance Oregon's budget responsibly." State Treasurer Randall Edwards
As our representative, Larry will fight for issues important to seniors. He will protect funding for home care services and will work to lower prescription drug costs. He will also crack down on elder abuse and identity theft.
"Larry Galizio will be a champion for senior issues in the Legislature." Joyce Patton, former Tigard City Councilor
KEEPING COMMUNITIES SAFE
Larry knows that guns just don't belong in schools. He will work for common sense gun laws to keep concealed weapons off school grounds and off school buses.
"We need Larry Galizio's leadership to protect our children from violence. He will stand up to extremists and demand sensible gun laws for Oregon." State Senator Ginny Burdick
