Dear Voters,

November 4, 2008 represents a vital turning point for our nation. In our government's culture of rigid partisanship, Congress frequently seems to act more for party or special interests than in America's best interests. As an independent-minded citizen, former teacher and small business owner, I believe we must reform that culture and bring sincerity to Washington for our nation to solve its daunting problems.

If you vote for me, you are electing a Traditional Republican who seeks to return the nation's focus to issues of conservation, fiscal responsibility, equal rights, following our Constitution, and achieving a healthy balance between the interests of business and labor. I will always act and vote for what I believe will most benefit Oregon and the nation, regardless of personal consequences or pressure from special interests! I pledge to focus my efforts on the following 5-Point Plan:

Please join me in reforming Congress, and visit for more information.

Thank you!
