The Clear Choice

The incumbent has consistently voted to increase taxes, including the largest tax increase in Oregon history (Measure 30). He continues to vote for more taxes on working families while voting to spend our valuable tax dollars on unnecessary projects like a new baseball stadium.

Dave Mowry knows that raising taxes is not the solution to the state's spending problems. Dave has been a strong advocate of requiring state government to live within its means…just like we have to.

"Dave will make a great State Representative! We strongly support him and ask you to vote for Dave Mowry."
      Jason Williams, Taxpayers Association of Oregon PAC

Creating A Strong Economy

Dave Mowry understands how to create jobs and energize the economy. Dave has personally experienced the ups and downs of the employment market…and Dave will fight to make sure that Oregon families have jobs and a bright future for our children

Represents The Voters

"Dave is a native Oregonian with a long and deep understanding of Oregon's people and issues. That's why Dave wants to fund education first instead of last. This will create smaller class sizes and keep the education budget from being used as a political football by Salem special interests."
      Rob Kremer, Oregon Education Coalition


"Dave Mowry is a candidate who transcends politics, stands up to special interests, and has the vision to do what is truly best for the state of Oregon. That's why I am endorsing Dave for state representative."
      United States Senator Gordon Smith
