3 things I will do if I win:
1. We need law and order. I oppose riots and looting. I’ll work to incentivize leaders to uphold laws. For safe communities there must be adequate funding for first responders. Accountability is also important, not just for law enforcement agencies, we need transparency on how tax payer money is spent.
2. A vital economy is necessary for our society. It is important to support small businesses and help them grow and expand. It is also important to help farms to be able to thrive in a changing market. I will fight for Oregon’s small businesses and farms, not huge out-of- state or foreign corporations.
3. It’s possible to cut costs of health insurance with more coverage options while protecting preexisting conditions. We cannot afford universal health care controlled by a government agency wielding excessive power to limit our medical options. We must have medical freedom.
