I love the great state of Oregon. We have a rich history, abundant natural resources, and hardworking people filled with a can-do attitude that has its roots in the pioneer spirit of the people who came out West in search of opportunity.
Oregon also has a lot of problems. Our government is too big and lacks accountability. We are missing many of the basic economic freedoms needed for a sound and healthy economy. Our education system is dysfunctional. There are fewer and fewer employment opportunites in our rural areas.
That's why I ran for the Legislature. I see our state's problems as opportunites that need years of care and attention. I hope to serve the people of Oregon well. If you have a comment or suggestion, please contact me.
