I BELIEVE Oregonians can be best served by an enlightened Democratic legislator. A Democrat from Central Oregon will bolster the Democratic majority in Salem, and will greatly meet the needs of Central Oregonians

Remember, the nation has been waiting for universal health coverage since Harry Truman. Much has been promised but little has been delivered.

Those who desire a college education for your children must think about the high cost. Without Higher Education, we loose the middle-class. I believe we can do more to make Higher Education available to more students.

More must be done to preserve and protect Oregon's forest, natural resources and open spaces.

I need and want your support. Please vote for Conrad Ruel for District 53. Thank you.
