An Open Letter To The Voters Of Senate District 28

Dear Voters,

I have called this area home for the past 40 years, and I can't imagine choosing to live anywhere else…which is why I am running for the Oregon Senate. There is much to do to protect our way of life – our interests – and our needs in Oregon's Capitol and I will work hard to see that our area has a strong voice on issues that impact our farmers, ranchers, businesses and local schools.

I will go to Salem to ensure that our property rights are protected, our taxes are low and that economic recovery is something we stop talking about and start getting done.

I'm asking for your vote for the State Senate. Please feel free to call me at home at 882-1315 if there are issues you would like to talk about.


Doug Whitsett
Candidate, Senate District 28
