City where I live: Gladstone
Skills: long-haul truck driver; aircraft mechanic; concrete mixed driver; student at Portland State University
3 things I will do if I win:
1. Create a State Bank–stop Wall Street ripoff of Oregon’s governments at all levels, which now pay Wall Street over $1 billion dollars/year just to manage money that already belongs to those governments. The State Bank would invest in Oregon jobs.
2. Adopt limits on political campaign contributions; require political ads identify their largest funders–right in the ads. The Center for Public Integrity rates Oregon’s campaign system as the absolute worst in America, except for Mississippi.
3. Cut Oregon income taxes on families living below or near the poverty line; increase taxes on corporations. Oregon has the lowest taxes on corporations of any state.
