Quality Education for Every Child

Education is the foundation of the next generation. West must find a stable and adequate dedicated funding source for K-12

Sexual Predators

Wayne is developing legislation to protect women and children from sexual predators. Oregon will not be a place sexual predators will be allowed to ruin women and children's lives.


Oregon must reduce bureaucracy and be a business friendly state. It is important that we create new job opportunities and protect our natural resource economy. We need to focus on family-wage jobs that will allow young people to continue to live in Southwestern Oregon.

Natural Resources

Wayne supports the sustainable, balanced harvest of our fish, timber and agricultural resources based on sound science. These are a way of life and key to the economy.


Wayne spearheaded the Meth Work Group of two Republicans and two Democrats including himself and together they produce they "Meth Package." This legislation increased penalties for meth dealers and cooks and provided increases in recovery programs including drug courts.

Dependency – Foster Care

Wayne patterned the Dependency Work Group after the meth group, to make the Department of Human Resources accountable, protect foster children and parents and grandparents, and provide justice. Wayne helped get ten pieces of legislation passed unanimously, and continues to work to develop a better more fair system of foster care.


Wayne has worked diligently to make state agencies accountable and reduce bureaucracy.
