A Proven, Effective Leader
Growing our Economy through Job Creation: Quality of life begins with a good job. The path to true economic prosperity can only be achieved through the creation of good paying jobs. We can neither tax nor cut our way to economic health.
The Deficit: I will get our nation’s budget back on track by bringing home our troops and reinvesting those dollars back into our communities.
Protecting our Seniors: Working families have paid into Social Security and Medicare in good faith and as your Congressman, my top priority is to protect these benefits.
Education: A first class education system is the gateway to rewarding careers for our children, global competitiveness for our employers and economic prosperity for our nation.
Safe Neighborhoods: I passed legislation that makes it possible to prosecute sex offenders who fail to re-register when they move, ensuring better protection for our children and neighborhoods.
Support of our Veterans: I passed legislation to provide college credit for military experience and expanded education and housing benefits to veterans’ families.
I put myself through college by working in a sawmill. I’vefocused my career on fairness for all Oregonians. That’s why I’ve worked to support neighborhood business, local food banks and affordable housing. This is who I am. This is the agenda I’ll take to Congress.
