It is truly an honor to represent the people Central Oregon Coast and the communities of the Coastal Range. This is a remarkably beautiful district, and it is no surprise that the rest of Oregon comes to our district to play, vacation and relax. Like many of you, I’m a small business owner. And like you, I believe in working hard and playing by the rules. Whether you own or work for a bed & breakfast, a fishing boat, a restaurant or on a small farm, you know that creativity and industriousness should be recognized, empowered, and rewarded. Rural economies require special attention and special solutions. We need to focus on creating not just more jobs, but better jobs. We also need to balance economic development with environmental sustainability, conservation and protection. Oregon has a wealth of natural beauty and natural resources. I am committed to preserving both for future generations to use and enjoy.
In addition, I remain focused on proper funding for education, health care and public safety. I believe in good schools for our kids and grandkids, safe neighborhoods, and independence and dignity for our older neighbors. All that requires well-maintained transportation networks that support our economic health. You will find me a particularly vocal supporter of community colleges, Small Business Development Centers and of “buy local” programs.
These tools help our communities to support each other and thrive. Your input is vital to a robust system of government. Please contact me about what is important to you through email, letters, telephone calls, or visits to my office.
