I am running for the Oregon State Senate to give the local residents the representation the deserve. I know with the leadership abilities I have developed operating my business and serving our community that together we can make a positive difference in our state.

To put Oregon families back to work we need to add a good dose of common sense to our state land use policies. For too long these policies have kept our natural resources locked up, our mills closed and our families our of work. The path to creating jobs must include putting Oregonians back to work on the land.

We have a long road back to prosperity and I ask for your vote as a first step.”
