Investing in Education, Focusing on Kids
Nothing is more important than our children's education. Smaller classes, quality teachers and safe schools are important ingredients in a successful education program. I won't support drastic cuts to our system and I will fight to ensure that education dollars are spent in the classroom on books, teachers and technology.
Create Jobs, Improve the State Economy, Limit Taxes
For nearly 20 years, I've managed my own small business. As a business consultant and advisor I know what it takes to stimulate business productivity. I know that we shouldn't raise taxes while we work to create jobs for Oregonians - working families should keep as much of the money they earn as possible.
Enhancing Quality of Life
Raising families in a safe community is important to all of us. To maintain the highest quality of life, I believe our neighborhoods need to be safe and well-managed. I have a no-nonsense attitude when it comes to fighting crime and I will fight for tough laws that protect our families and punish violent criminals by keeping them off the streets.
