3 things I will do if I win:
1. My first priority is continue to maximize state investment returns while minimizing risk while recognizing the values Oregonians hold.
2. Oregon’s next Treasurer will have the responsibility of overseeing the implementation of the new Oregon retirement savings plan. The depth and breadth of my experience is exactly what is needed to successfully bring the plan into operation
3. Educational infrastructure (buildings) is critical for Oregon’s future success. As Treasurer, the job is to make the money count, not counting the money. Doing so provides funds for the rebuilding of our schools, colleges and universities.
