Chris Garrett Has The Right Plan
To Move Oregon Forward

Fund our schools for excellence to lower class sizes, update textbooks, and improve teacher training.

Control tuition costs so all students can afford to attend state universities, community colleges, or vocational programs.

Require insurers and hospitals to follow consistent pricing guidelines to ensure quality health care at fair prices. Give seniors more options for quality long-term care, including in-home care.

Attract renewable energy companies to provide new jobs and help the state meet its renewable energy goals.
