In Oregon, we are dealing with a growing number of issues, many of which will require cooperation and determination to fix. Unfortunately, there is only one party sitting at the table in Oregon. That party hasn’t been challenged for years, and it shows. Today, we face an education catastrophe with one of the worst dropout rates in the nation. The homeless crisis rages out of control with little action being taken to remedy the problem. Salem threatens to toll our crumbling highways, a regressive tax policy that hurts those least able to pay.
The status quo is not working in Oregon and it’s going to take more than one party to change things. I am running because I believe that together we can create an Oregon that works for everyone. I believe in an Oregon where both parties compete for your vote and where both sides work together to build a brighter future for every Oregonian.
In order to bring balance back to the legislature, we need a Republican Party that reflects Oregon values. I believe in compassion, empathy, and opportunity. I believe in a Republican Party that values immigrants. I believe in a Republican Party that reaches out to minorities and the LGBTQIA+ community. I believe in a Republican Party that sees chronic homelessness as a mental health crisis and comes to the table with solutions. Working together, we can do all this while providing more opportunities to the people of our State.
