Giving Families The Tools They Need To Get Ahead

"When families can save - buying a home, creating a stock portfolio or paying down debt – they are stronger. We can help families get ahead by keeping an eye on the ball. Reducing the cost of health care is one way. College savings plans are another. These two areas have become my passions." -- Mark Hass

A Champion For Vets

In the February 2008 Legislative session, Senator Hass wrote the new law that provides a free college education to an Oregon University for widows and orphans of fallen GIs.

"Senator Hass stood up for veterans when it counted. He quietly did the heavy lifting for this new law that will dramatically change lives of war orphans and widows for the better."
-- Robert Thornhill
Submariner EU2(SS) (Korean War) Ret. Dept. of Army Civilian Executive

Clean Air, Clean Water

Mark grew up hiking, biking and fishing in Oregon's mountains and streams. He's understands the Oregon ethic of taking care of our land.

"Oregon needs leaders who look past the election and into the future where our grandchildren and their children will live. Mark Hass is one of those leaders."
-- Gov. John Kitzhaber
Oregon Governor 1995-2003

Bipartisanship

"When I begin my term as Mayor of Beaverton, Senator Hass is my go-to guy in Salem. His bipartisan approach to solving problems is exactly what we need."
