3 things I will do if I win:

Icon: a dollar sign superimposed over the US Capitol Building with the label Limit beneath1. Limiting government spending and living within our means is the first step in assuring the financial security of the nation and our currency. This is of the upmost importance right now with the rising debt of our nation and financial outlook of our future. Stop spending what we don’t have.

Icon: an arrow points down to a line, with the word TAX underneath2. By limiting government spending, we’ll be able to reduce the tax burden on the citizens and corporations of United States. This will encourage economic growth and put more money in the pockets of the people who should be making the decisions, the average citizen.

Icon: the Statue of Liberty3. Lady Liberty is a beacon of freedom around the world, she needs to shine her light for the citizen’s of the nation to lead us back to liberty and freedom for all people within our own boarders again. Less government and more freedom.

3 things I will do if I win:

Icon: peace symbol (anti-nuclear circle with 3 lines)1. We need a Path to Unity. We are a divided country, and it is time that Congress comes together to do the hard work of communication to restore our government so that it can work for the good of everyone.

Icon: the United States with a medical symbol in the center2. Once thought of as idealistic – Universal Healthcare has become a practical solution. Many lost their Healthcare when they lost their jobs due to the pandemic. We need Healthcare as a matter of good government infrastructure that cares for everyone as a basic right.

Icon: image of the sun, a wind turbine, and apower/thunderbolt icon with grass beneath3. We need to care for our Infrastructure from roads, bridges and broadband to an elevated high-speed-rail system that connects Oregon and provides a relief- valve in a catastrophic earthquake. We also need to work to bring folks together to ensure we have enough clean-cold- healthy water.
